Railway Land and Dog Plop

I'd like to complain about people using the Railway Land Nature Reserve to walk their dogs or rather them using it is a dog toilet. There are piles of steaming dog poo everywhere and is a hazard for kids.

There's a trail of dog poo up School Hill most mornings, same place, same colour (sorry) so assuming from the same dog - it's disgusting :-(

To have one poo bin in a large recreational area is silly. Several times I have asked the Railway Land caretaker (Dan?) about the possibility of a dog poo bin at the Court Road end (as it's like an obstacle course there). He states that this would not be considered as the poo bins get vandalised.
As for the trail of dog poo up School Hill - local people state that the dog concerned is a black Lab and the owner is a retired person who does not allow the dog to stop and foul, so drags the dog along whilst "doing the deed". This person also regularly uses the nearby Twittens, Lanes and Lansdown Place.

Shame someone can't stop the filthy b*****d and break both his legs. Then the dog will have to s*** in his living room....see how he likes it then !!!!

As usual its ignorant people like the black lab owner mentioned above that spoil it for everyone else. If that dog goes regularly as indicated it would take very little effort to train him to use a more appropriate area. With continuity and patience it is possible to teach your dog to defecate on command. Wherever they go there is absolutely no excuse for any dog owner not to clear up after their pet and offenders should be heavily fined. I have never heard of any dog owner being penalised for this offence yet I see plenty of offenders. What does the dog warden do if people report these regular offenders?

Stop moaning...
There's a good likelyhood that one of those traffic warden folk may tread on some.
Anyhowz... I have to walk my dog somewhere.

Here here JBTYW and Record. It is the owners not the dogs. As a dog owner I know that the railway land is not awash with poo bins. However carrying a bag of poo for an an hour is not that bad. Sods law is that the dog does one miles from a bin - I am sure that they do this on purpose and have a great laugh at my expense as I carry unspeakables for a while.
