Two More Locals Prosecuted For Dog Fouling Offenses

Dog Fouling


Following investigations by the Dog Warden Service at Scarborough Borough Council, two cases for dog fouling offences were dealt with at Scarborough Magistrates Court earlier this month. Both offenders failed to appear at court and the cases were proven in their absence.

A male resident of Castle Road, Scarborough, was found guilty of two separate offences of being in charge of a dog and failing to pick up dog faeces in Royal Albert Park on 24 November 2014 and on Mulgrave Terrace on 29 January this year. He was fined a total of £300 and ordered to pay costs of £240 with a victim surcharge of £20.

A female resident of Albert Street, Scarborough, was found guilty of an offence of being in charge of a dog and failing to pick up dog faeces in Clarence Gardens on 27 November 2014. She was fined £100 and ordered to pay costs of £120 with a victim surcharge of £20.

These latest successes come soon after another proven dog fouling case for the council in February when Steve Austin of Ramsey Street, Scarborough was found guilty of being in charge of a dog and failing to pick up dog faeces.

Russell Camm, Scarborough Borough Council Dog Warden said:
"We view dog fouling as one of our main priorities and will continue to not only proactively target problem areas, but also robustly enforce the legislation throughout the whole of the borough. It is clear that the majority of dog owners behave responsibly with their dogs,although there is an irresponsible minority that do not. We encourage people to report any incidents of dog fouling to us so that we can look to pursue the culprits and where possible, deal with them with the full power of the law." 
"We would like to remind dog owners that under the Fouling of Land by Dogs Order 2012 for the Borough of Scarborough, it is an offence to allow a dog to foul in any area open to the public, without the person who is in charge of the dog clearing up the mess immediately."
Incidents of dog fouling can be reported by visiting scarborough.gov.uk and using the ‘do it online’ facility, by email to customer.first@scarborough.gov.uk or by calling 01723 232323.
