More signs are needed to encourage dog walkers to 'scoop the poop' of their dogs into a dog waste bag, or use "stick to flick" to get rid of dog faeces into the undergrowth either side of paths like Woodhouses Lane. I've put the marker near this access point off Parkdale Rise, as there is an irresponsible owner of a large dog who lives near here, and he lets it defecate in the middle of the nice newly surfaced path. His excuse is that horses and ponies do their business on it, but he’s ignoring the fact that it's a bridleway, and that the faeces of a carnivore is toxic and dangerous compared to a herbivore. There are many more like him. So, all over Gateshead, where there are entrances to rural paths, and on those rights of way themselves, it would greatly help if the council put up signs warning dog-walkers of their obligations.
