I see that Wiltshire Council is consulting on and plans to introduce Dog Control Orders 2012 (Letters, April 12) which give more powers over dog fouling and access to dog walkers. I have recently become dismayed about the amount of dog mess around Calne. I often walk out with my baby son in his pushchair and we’re always running the gauntlet between piles of poop (in Duncan Street last week I counted three, plus numerous piles along Hungerford Road and Oxford Road).
I also note that along the bypass some particularly disgusting individuals bag up their dog poo and then hurl it into the trees, where it hangs. I am all for these new regulations, I know it is normally the minority that spoil things for the majority of responsible owners but the dog fouling is unsightly, unhygenic and, let’s face it, pretty foul!
Jo Mundy, Calne.
