Be­hav­iour that is worse than dogs

The Oban Times - - News -

PEDES­TRI­ANS are fed up avoiding dog fae­ces in and around Oban – but one Com­bie Street res­i­dent was horrified to find his close be­ing used as a pub­lic toi­let.

The res­i­dent is of­ten wo­ken on Fri­day and Satur­day nights be­tween mid­night and 2am by rev­ellers in the al­ley be­tween the Lochavulin pub and MSP Michael Rus­sell’s con­stituency of­fice.

But af­ter a week­day dis­tur­bance at 1.30am on Wed­nes­day May 8, he dis­cov­ered used toi­let pa­per lit­ter­ing the close and – worst of all – hu­man ex­cre­ment in the cor­ner.

‘They’ve been uri­nat- ing in the past but this is the first time there’s been this,’ he said. ‘It’s very sim­i­lar to the dog sit­u­a­tion, ex­cept these have two legs.

‘It sur­prises me there is this be­hav­iour in Oban. I think they should get back to the gut­ter and clean it up.

‘It’s a health and safety is­sue: there are three­and four-year- old kids who live in this block. One neigh­bour has moved out to some­where qui­eter.’

The in­ci­dent was re­ported to the po­lice, and any­one with any in­for­ma­tion can call Po­lice Scot­land on 101.

Peo­ple have used the close as a toi­let.
