Resident picks up "disgusting" amount of dog fouling bags
A “DISGUSTING” number of dog fouling bags have been retrieved from hedges and footpaths.
In one day 37 bags were picked up in Mistley, by resident Bob Horlock after irresponsible dog owners chucked them in Furze Hill and Essex Way.
Mistley Parish Council wants to install signs and two new bins by the village hall and at the junction of School Lane and Green Lane to try to curb the dirty habit.
At Mistley Parish Council’s January meeting calls were made for residents to shame careless dog owners into picking up after their pets.
