WHEN I took a group of nursery children to the Riverside Park, in St Neots, I was very disappointed to encounter the amount of dogs' mess that was around.
These children are very young and are unaware of what they tread in or pick up. There is a serious risk of illness. Dog owners have little respect for the public if they leave the disgusting mess everywhere.
Several times at weekends I have been soaked, covered in mud or had my picnic eaten by dogs off the lead and left to run amok.
One dog, in particular, is over-friendly and comes over to us, jumping on us and eating our food. The owner calls out that he won't hurt and lets him carry on.
There are other parks that are more suitable for dogs not on a lead, like the Common or Pocket Park. The Riverside park is clearly for children and adults to enjoy without dogs' mess and jumping animals.
I have informed the council, which said there was nothing it could do about it. People who let their dogs foul should not be able to own pets because they can't look after them.
