Thanks to a reader called Bill for this question.
Being a dog owner and walking locally due to lockdown, I was wondering why there is so much dog mess around in Bude at the moment.
Normally we’d blame the mass of holidaymakers around town but I’m not sure that this washes at the moment.
Having just watched a black lab have a poo on the golf course whilst the owner kept an eye out for other walkers and, having seen none, decided to walk on without picking it up, I realise that perhaps a small number of local dog owners may not be doing what we expect of them.
Come on people or we’ll not be able to walk our dogs at any time!
