Dog owner fined for not clearing up

3636_signsA woman has been handed a £75 fine for not clearing up after her dog in Stafford Borough.

She told the borough council officer she didn’t think she had done ‘anything wrong’ after leaving the mess on a grass verge.

The woman let her Labrador foul on the verge on Hilderstone Road in Meir Heath. She did not have any bags on her to clear up the mess.

The council has run a high-profile campaign over the last few years to clamp down on inconsiderate dog owners who do not clear up after their pets.
