Northam Burrows a Dog Toilet

Reported in the Dog fouling category anonymously at 17:34, Thu 4 July 2019

Sent to Torridge District Council less than a minute later

Went for a walk across Northam Burrows. The dog mess is littered everywhere as you walk to the Northern end. It's not sheep mess, it's dog mess and carries on unabated. During a visit earlier this year we saw dogs running free, chasing sheep and leaving their faeces where they were. Some dog owners picked up but we observed two leave the little black bag in clumps of rushes.. The Northern end of the Burrows was so heavily soiled by constant piles of dog mess we turned back. An extremely pleasant area spoiled due to being overrun by dogs. ANOB and SSSI as well I believe. So why is it being allowed to be abused and spoiled for so many who would visit except for it being inundated by dogs and their mess
