Bin and gone

OK – no mucking around, enough is enough. Someone has nicked a bin full of dog poo, we’re mad as hell and we’re not going to take it any more!

I was contacted by Shire Oak resident @WingedMaidenUK this morning on Twitter who pointed out that the dog waste bin that stood on the canal towpath by the fence at the rear access gate from Chandlers Keep had vanished. Gone. Disappeared.

There is a general shortage of dog waste disposal points in the area, and this one was well-used by responsible dog owners, and its loss was this morning causing a bit of a stink.

Thing is, I’m not sure who’s responsible for the removal of the poo receptacle, and who actually owned it – whether it was Walsall Council or the Canal & River Trust.

I have enquired with the Council and will pass on developments as I get them.

In the meantime, could the bozo who leaves the poo bags hanging in the trees beside the Anchor please desist? It’s not big and it’s not clever. We actually think you’re a bloody arsehole, and they poo flinger may well find the waste re-inserted should one of us catch them in the act…

    Perhaps needs a redesign like Salvation Army have for clothes recycling, with a flap inside – so when door is open, you can’t see what is in below. Might cut down the smell as well!
