Rubbish, part 1

Seen before Christmas beside a path outside Wimborne Minster in Dorset: a neat line of plastic bags all containing dog faeces. The owners had obviously bagged up the contents and dropped them again the moment they reached the edge of town.

This reminds me of the famous seawall between Teignmouth and Dawlish. A few years ago the wall separating the walkway from the railway was lined with frequent bags; people were bagging up the dog droppings and could not be bothered carrying them back with them.

Perhaps the council should provide dog bins in such areas. But a lack of such bins does not excuse such littering.

Hi there, great blog by the way. I'll be interested to see any walks that come up in the Dorset area as I visit there often (my parents live there) and we do love to walk!

Can't see the point of bagging up dog poo and then littering the bags.....grrrrl, surely if your going to do that it's better just to let your dog poo and forget the bags!
