‘Dog fouling in Mayobridge should be tackled’ – Ruane

Sinn Féin MLA Caitriona Ruane has called on Newry and Mourne Council to put measures in place to deal with the excessive dog fouling in Mayobridge.

Speaking to Newry Times, Ms Ruane stated, “In a recent survey carried out in Mayobridge by Sinn Féin, dog fouling in public places was one of the main issues that was raised throughout the area. Apart from being unpleasant, dog dirt is also dangerous especially to young children and the issue needs to be addressed.”

She continued, “I have written to the Council to ask them what measures can be put in place in order to address the problem. I would like to see more dog litter bins situated around the area so that dog owners can ‘**** and scoop’ whenever their dog has a call of nature and I also would like to see more dog wardens on patrol to ensure that stray dogs are rounded up.”

“It is also important that dog owners take responsibility for their pets and should automatically bring a ****-scoop or disposable plastic bag with them when leaving home with their dog,” Ruane added.
