Letter: Some pet owners still don’t pick up after their dogs
Darrell Gillespie took these photos of dog waste bags someone just left behind.

Dear editor:

I want to thank those many pet owners who over the past decade or so have transitioned away from letting their animal defecate throughout their neighbourhoods and now diligently pick up and bag your creature’s business.

However, there are a few of you who need to more fully complete your responsibility.

Neither the Town of Niagara-on-the-Lake nor Niagara Region provide a “bagged dog poop” pick-up service.

So please ensure that after you have tidied up Rover’s digestive remains that you cart the little bag back to your house and not leave it lying about the streets of our town.

This is your responsibility and no one else’s.

Thank you on behalf of a grateful community.
