Dog Poo Campaign

(Updated 10:54am 19th February 2013)
A Cornish businessman has started secretly filming owners who do not pick up after their dog.
Rik Jones from Liskeard is handing the footage to the local council, warning the mess is everywhere.
Pirate FM has learnt since he started, his car has been vandalised.
Rik said: "Dog poo is one of the worst things out on the streets. You only need a little kiddie coming along, falling over or even touching it. They don't know what it is, they don't know any difference between dog poo or whatever. And if they touch it and they get germs on them, they could put their hands in their mouth or anything.
"The people out there who are not picking up after the dogs, I want you to know that yes, Liskeard Council are issuing fixed penalty tickets, there is evidence of this going on and if you are caught, expect a knock on the door."
