issues warning as fouling patrols increase in Apex Park
Dog walkers in Highbridge's Apex Park have this week been
warned that additional dog warden patrols are being carried out
in response to concerns about the amount of dog waste that is
not being picked up.
Sedgemoor District Council Dog warden Tina Kick, pictured, told
Burnham-On-Sea.com: "There are many responsible dog walkers
who exercise their dogs in Apex Park who pick up after their pets."
"However, there are a few who spoil things by not clearing
up and we have put in extra patrols to help combat the problem."
"Any one seen not picking up after their dogs will face
an on-the-spot fixed penalty fine of £75."
"Failure to pay the fixed penalty notice can result in those
responsible being prosecuted for the offence with a maximum fine
