Letters to Menstrie Matters
Injured pet: Community Council Response
We received a letter in the Menstrie Matters Mail Box recently from someone whose dog had been injured on metal spikes that had been left from the old bridge. Kenny McKaig our photographer took photographs of the location and although it is very overgrown at the moment we have arranged for someone to remove them and we hope this will be done soon.
I am sure that most of the residents of Middleton Kerse Estate have been as disgusted as I have when going in and out of the estate recently. The site of 2 discarded dog-dirt bags lying on the path is quite disgusting. If people walk their dogs in DCL grounds there are plenty of diposal bins in the area. If they have been in the 'dog walk' it would be acceptable to 'flick with stick'. But would it really be so difficult just to carry it the rest of the way home?
The Community Council reminds readers about Clackmannanshire Council's notice to all dog-walkers:
NOTICE TO ALL PERSONS IN CHARGE OF A DOG
In view of the recent increase of irresponsible disposal of used dog foul bags
The £40 fixed penalty also applies to this behaviour.
(or take it home)
Dog walkers should note that Clackmannanshire Council means business. See their press release of June 2006.
