disgusting dog owner

What a disgusting and disgraceful mess.

This is what shoppers in Belgrave had to contend with as they went about their business last Saturday morning.

A disgusting mess of dog excrement, fouling the footpath in front of a busy ATM.

I cannot understand why irresponsible dog owners think this is okay.

Under the Yarra Ranges Animal Control Local Law 2007
it is an offence to leave animal excrement in a public place.

Just in case you would like to know the wording of the local law in relation to Fouling it is:

The owner or person in charge of an animal in a public place must:
(a) ensure that excrement deposited by the animal in a public place is removed and disposed of in a lawful manner;
(b) carry a bag or other device suitable for the removal of any excrement that may be deposited by the animal; and
(c) produce the bag or device on the demand of an Authorised Officer.

Whilst the majority of dog owners are responsible and clean up after their pets, it's the few like this person who give all dog owners a bad name.
