    So, you are walking along minding your own bussiness and your dog comes across some lovely smelling litter, a crisp packet or burger wrapper. You tell your dog to drop it, and if you have them trained :D they do.
    Now, would you be able to be prosecuted for dropping litter?
    Apparently, a mother was prosecuted when her small child did this :(

    Its ridiculous these days isnt it, you cannot do anything.

    I hate to see litter but I wont pick it up if its not mine.....and if Pip picked something up, I would be disgusted if someone tried to fine me for it! Mind you, Pippin being the minx she is would probably go and hide in a bush with whatever she had found!

    Thankfully mine don't pick up things... If I do see dave head towards something he obviously thinks smells nice, one 'leave it' will have him walking straight past.

    I did have a foster gsd who on command would 'put it in the bin' :D

    If Zipper picked anything up I'd be lucky to get him to drop it, he normally runs off and eats anything he finds :D

    urgh i hate people that drop litter. I walk in the park almost every day with the boys only to find litter like, everywhere. It makes me wonder if people in the world are actually sensible.

    I'm not saying i don't pick up my dog's poo, but if people complain about us not picking up after our dogs, then why can't they show the same respect to all park walkers in picking up their litter instead of leaving it lying around for some animal to pick up, swallow and probably choke on?

    OMG, thats shocking. If either of my sons pick something up outside I tell them to put it straight down...who knows where its been or whats on it!

    What annoys me most around my area is that I find a lot of dog poo bags lying about (full might I add), do they think this makes it any better just cos its bagged. FFS, just carry it to the nearest bin :cursing:
