Yesterday’s post about dog fouling in south Leeds has provoked a strong response.
The I Live in Miggy (LS10) Facebook page posted a link to the latest article in our Scoop It Up Campaign, which chronicled local people’s frustration with dog fouling in the area. The campaign aims to encourage people to report problems and irresponsible dog owners and educate people to scoop up after their pets.
On Facebook, the post got a couple of comments. These included:
One South Leeds resident posted:
“There’s a girl that lives over road from me in Beeston. She let her dog go in streets outside my house. [It’s] back to back houseing, so [it’s] right out side my door without picking it up.”
Deacon Al Henry added:
“What is needed is an educational programme starting with the children, hopefully we can start to grow a new generation who knows better. I live on Town Street and its a constant worry of my family as a lot of fouling happens in front my house. My daughter has made many signs, we hope ppl will take heed. I was told there are only four dog warden in the whole city. HELP KEEP MIGGY TIDY.”
