Dog fouling hazards

MIDLOTHIAN Council is renewing its drive against irresponsible dog owners.

Councillor Owen Thompson, the cabinet member for environmental health, said: “There are new efforts underway to reinforce our abhorrence at dog fouling, but what hasn’t changed is our message which remains very clear and very direct - dog fouling is totally unacceptable.

“It is illegal to fail to clean up after your dog, it is a health hazard and we will continue to take enforcement action against anyone who disregards the law.”
