Clear up af­ter your dog - or you could fall foul of the ‘pet po­lice’


Manchester Evening News - - NEWS - By SAM YARWOOD

AN­GRY notices have been stuck to more than a dozen trees at a park warning dog own­ers to pick up af­ter their pets or risk hav­ing their faces posted on so­cial me­dia.

The A4 posters ap­peared at Wil­low Play Park on Higher Road in Urm­ston.

They were at­tached to at least 13 trees, as well as a num­ber of tele­phone masts. A photo posted on so­cial me­dia showed the lam­i­nated notices stuck to six trees on the edge of the park clos­est to the pave­ment and road.

It said they had been stuck to ‘ev­ery sin­gle tree.’

They read: “Clean up af­ter your dog as from now on you are all on cam­era.

“Your face will look great on Face­book. Also goes for them who leave it on the pave­ment.”

In Trafford, as in most bor­oughs, it is il­le­gal for dog own­ers not to clean up af­ter their pets. A £50 Fixed Penalty No­tice will be given to any owner who fails to com­ply with the law.

Non-pay­ment can re­sult in a pros­e­cu­tion and fine of up to £1,000.
