April 30, 2014- Don’t shoot the messenger, dog owners, but we are receiving many complaints about dog owners allowing their pets to use grass lawns as bathrooms. One man wrote, “It seems now that the grass parks are open the dog people ignore the laws and the funds spent on maintaining the grass. Last night at about 11 PM there was a woman who said she was not doing anything. I replied, “This is not a park for dogs. Children play here. Dogs have there own park.”. It is only the beginning.”
The vast majority of dog owners are considerate. However, a few bad owners can jeopardize it all.
Of note, the West Thames grass field is hit the hardest by this problem. People from FiDi come over late at night and allow their dogs to urinate at the foot of the Rector Street Bridge (another reason to tear that monstrosity down).
