So, this poor lady lets her dog poo in the park, she walks away, and she gets fined for it.
And it’s written up in the local paper!
A DOG owner who let her pet foul in Cuerden Valley Country Park and made no attempt to clear up the mess has been fined £50.
Kelly Haydon, 20, of Laburnum Avenue, Lostock Hall, pleaded guilty to letting the dog foul the land after originally appealing a fixed penalty notice issued by Chorley Council.
Magistrates heard that Haydon was walking her brown springer spaniel dog with another lady in August this year when the dog, which was off the lead, fouled in the park.
A Chorley Council Neighbourhood Officer on patrol witnessed the incident and saw that neither woman made an attempt to clean up the mess.
He identified the owner of the dog and issued her with a £50 fixed penalty notice
When was the last time a dog poo fine has been written up in the Chicago Journal or the Chicago Tribune? In fact, when was the last time anyone has been fined under Chicago Municipal Code 7-12-420 “Removal of excrement”?
We don’t know, but would love to find out.
Seems like it might even rival ‘Man bites Dog’.
Imagine the headlines!
