'Disgusting': Sydney locals fume at act of 'lazy' dog owners

·2-min read

Locals are fuming after someone hit out at several dog owners' "laziness" when it comes to disposing of their dog's business.

On a Sydney-based community Facebook group, one person shared a picture of several dog bags hanging from a branch at the Two Creeks Track on city's Upper North Shore.

The person also had a few words for dog owners using the track, sardonically saying "not everyone appreciates these 'sculptures by the track'."

"Dear dog owners, please stop dumping your dog's party bags on the Two Creeks Track," the person complained.

"There are four big bins at the end of the track which are a much more appropriate location for disposal.

"Please don't spoil this lovely track with your laziness. Thanks you!"

In the comments, the person who shared the picture said they had collected the doggie bags from all along the track and carried them on a stick.

They explained the photo was snapped just before they disposed of the litter.

Several people were disgusted by the discarded bags of dog poo and were getting fired up in the comments.

"As a dog owner, I find this lazy and equally as bad as not picking up," someone said. 

"And it is behaviour such as this that will see the few spaces we enjoy with our poochies taken away."

One community member said leaving the plastic bags out on display was "worse" than not picking it up, as leaving it would mean it would disappear "naturally" in a few weeks.

Someone else said they always have extra bags on hand as they are constantly picking up after other people's dogs.

Several people said the act reflects badly on all dog owners.

"These people give all good and responsible dog owners a bad name," one Facebook user said.

Ku-ring-gai Council states on its website that owners should pick up after their dog. 

The picture of the sign shared to the Facebook group says dogs are permitted in the area, but they must be on-leash, however parts of the track cut into Garigal National Park, where dogs are not permitted.
