Bag it and bin it

PUBLISHED: 10:17 11 February 2008 | UPDATED: 19:42 05 July 2010

TWO weeks ago I started to do a bit of walking along local coastal paths and beaches.

So far I have totalled about 40 miles between Gorleston and Southwold.

What has astonished me is the amount of dog's mess that is left neatly tied up in bags.

What is the point in bagging up your dog's mess only to discard it again on paths, in verges, in hedges, sand dunes and even hanging on fences? I thought that those who cleaned up after their dogs were responsible, but quite clearly some of them are not.

I do not condone those who do not even bother to bag it up but at least it can be broken down into the soil quicker by the weather and even the misplaced foot.

My point is, bag it up and dispose of it responsibly.
