An interesting take on the perennial problem of poo-in-the-hedge. The Ranger would be interested to know the story behind this sign… Who wrote it? Was it successful? Update: see this entertaining and scientific development of the concept at Island 2000!

  • I can’t understand why some dog owners go to the trouble of taking these brightly coloured bags with them to then deposite them half way up a hedge or tree! Do they really think this is better then just leaving it? At least the un-wrapped article will bio-degrade back into the soil eventually. Better still TAKE IT HOME!!!

    It’s not nice seeing dog mess anywhere and the problem of dog owners bagging the poo and leaving the bags lying around is somehow even more anti-social than the unpackaged turds. What is it with people? I hope this cute sign has some effect.
