So­cial me­dia

The Oban Times - - Letters -

This is In­ter­na­tional Pooper Scooper Week. We asked on so­cial me­dia: ‘Do peo­ple pick up af­ter their pooches where you live?’

Saskia Cheney replied em­phat­i­cally: ‘No! The whole town is dis­gust­ing! I can’t walk into town with my son with­out con­stantly warn­ing him about the dog muck ev­ery­where! Gives a bad name to the ma­jor­ity who do pick up.’

Wil­lie Reid dis­agreed: ‘I’d say 99 per cent of dog own­ers in Oban al­ready do. I’ve never seen th­ese ar­eas that are sup­pos­edly awash with dog turds. I do see loads of bro­ken glass, vomit, and take­away wrap­pers strewn ev­ery­where, so how about a cam­paign against that.’

Laura Wathey lamented: ‘Don’t know what’s worse, the amount of dog mess over the pave­ments around town or the smell of the rub­bish that gets piled up since the carry on with the new up­lifts. It’s a joke.’ Heather Allen blasted: ‘No! Reg­u­larly walk dog on lo­cal cy­cle paths and the amount of poo is dis­gust­ing.’ Nikki Warham posted: ‘I pick up af­ter my dogs when we are in Ben­der­loch. Most peo­ple pick it up if it’s on the path and some leave it if it’s not.’ Marcin Sa­marow wrote: ‘Only the civilised do.’

Billy Kyle re­ported: ‘Have seen a few in­stances to­day al­ready where some peo­ple ob­vi­ously don’t.’

Mark Card­well warned: ‘Ev­ery week there is at least one poo left on Breadal­bane St; re­ally in­con­sid­er­ate as so many chil­dren use that route.’
