LETTERS: Dog days must be numbered


Dog people, please be aware that when you put your dog’s poop into a plastic bag and throw it in the bushes, you are creating a biohazard.

Their feces will ferment into a toxic soup that will poison any living organism that comes into contact with it. This means squirrels, birds, insects, etc.

I have taken it upon myself to remove many plastic bags from Crescent Park, but I always find new ones thrown in the trees by some thoughtless dog person. I suspect the rest of Surrey is just as bad.

I believe it is time to ban all dogs from public parks in Surrey.

Chew on that.
