City raises a stink

Cockburn Gazette - - NEWS - Belinda Cipri­ano

THE City of Cock­burn has is­sued a warning af­ter six sep­a­rate de­posits of hu­man fae­ces were found in bush­land in Au­bin Grove this month.

Both hu­man fae­ces and toi­let pa­per were re­ported in six lo­ca­tions across the area by a lo­cal dog walker.

En­vi­ron­ment man­ager Chris Beaton said any­one caught defe­cat­ing in pub­lic in the City of Cock­burn would be pros­e­cuted.

Mr Beaton said they could face a fine and be charged by po­lice.

He said the City knew of six sites where the in­ci­dents had oc­curred, with the dog walker re­port­ing them to the City on May 16.

Mr Beaton urged peo­ple to no­tify the City should they see or found any­thing.

A post with a pic­ture of the lo­ca­tions on the City’s Face­book page also called for wit­nesses.

“The un­ac­cept­able be­hav­iour is a health risk and any­one wit­ness­ing this be­hav­iour is urged to email the City,” it said.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion should email cus­tomer@cock­burn.wa.gov.au.
