The dog poop is hitting the fan in some communities across the country. Residents that don’t pick up after their pets are getting hit with fines – some of them steep. Local authorities across the UK have issued over 2,099 fines for dog fouling in 2016 up to 7th July, totaling £120,359 according to new research from Direct Line Pet Insurance.

Key Takeaways:

  • The latest research shows that the South Yorkshire town of Barnsley received 624 reports of dog fouling last year and issued a total of 359 fines.
  • Children are most at risk of picking up this disease as they are more likely to come into contact with infected soil.
  • The disease can cause problems with eye sight for children and can be caught from ingesting the eggs rather than getting contaminated soil in the eye.
