Dog poo in Clovelly wetland

2019-11-26 06:00

I regularly walk my dogs in the Clovelly wetland. It is a splendid swathe of nature except for the fact that so many dog walkers allow their dogs to poop right on or right near the path, spoiling the otherwise pristine environment for the rest of us.

Riverine Rovers puts out plastic bags and notices appealing to dog walkers to pick up their dogs’ poo but there remain those who just ignore this and treat the wetland as a toilet for their dogs.

An alternative to bagging and binning your dog’s poo is to bring a little gardening trowel and just flip the poo into the bushes away from the path. Or you can buy bio-degradable doggie poop bags.

For those of you who are still not picking up your dog’s poo, please can you be more considerate. It will be a real shame if one day there are enough complaints to the City and they designate the wetland a no-dog zone.
