Dog fouling isn’t the only mess

From: John Beck, Park Shaw, Sedlescombe

I refer to your editorial last week about dog fouling in the area.

I took my dog out one morning for our usual walk through Sedlescombe.

On route, I saw massive piles of horse excrement, oodles of goose poo, former fox fodder in abundance and seagull gunge all over cars.

If my pup performs uncleared doggy-doos, I will be fined up to £1,000.

Meanwhile, lorry loads of material waste are being shed over the countryside.

As a dog owner, do you think my human rights are being impinged?
