Sydling St Nicholas Parish Council has received a number of complaints about several areas in the village where Dog Poo being left on public Highways & Footpaths is becoming a real problem.

In response to this issue the Parish Council have erected some new signs which are having a positive impact on the worst affected areas. The council is shortly to undertake further Anti-Dog Fouling measures as it is an ongoing problem that needs to be tackled and here’s why.

 

 

A) 40% of Dog owners do not take responsibility for cleaning up after their Dog.

 

B) It is Estimated that 9 Million Dogs produce 1000 Tonnes of Waste Every Day.

 

C) Just 30g of Dog Poo can contain over 23 million micro organisms of bacteria. That’s twice as much as human faeces!

 

D) Disease and viruses such as E.Coli and Coccidia can be found in Dog Poo and can also contain worms and their eggs like Toxocara Canis (roundworm).

 

E) Just one pile of Dog Poo can contain a million roundworm eggs! Which can lead to stomach upsets, throat infections, asthma and in some cases blindness in humans.

Over 100 cases of partial blindness In children are seen every year due to Toxocara Canis eggs found in Dog Poo.

 

F) Dog Poo left on fields can expose a variety of mammals including Cows & Sheep to a parasitic infection Neosporosis, is found in Dog Poo and is caused by infection with the protozoa Neospora Caninum. Neospora has been found to cause abortions in cattle, sheep and Dogs.

 

G) Under the Dog Act 1996, it is UK Law to clean up after your dog. On the spot fines can be given between £50- £80 for anyone caught failing to do so. (Varies between Local Authorities. )Refusal to pay the fine, (maximum penalty of £1,000.) may result in prosecution and you could face a court appearance.

Registered blind dog owners are exempt from penalties.

H) Costs to promote Dog Fouling issues within the village, comes out of Your Parish Council Precept and could ultimately affect you as it may increase how much Council Tax you have to pay.
