Dog owners need to clean up after their pets

Carole Jenkins advises fellow dog owners to clean up after their dogs so they can all be free to walk their pooches through a poop-free town

Editor:

While walking our dog up main street, we couldn’t believe the piles of dog poop that have not been cleaned up by the owners.

This is supposed to be a beautiful town, but there is so much poop smeared all over the sidewalk that you have to walk on the road to get away from the mess. We were told by some people that we should walk our dog in the dog park at the beach, also some other places, instead of town (we clean up after our dog). I thought this was a free country. We don’t walk very far, but we found out this (dogs pooping) happens on many of the streets in Ladysmith.

We also need another doggie bag dispenser downtown by Aggie Hall.
