If you don’t scoop your dog’s poop, it could cost you $240.
That’s the word from Pet and Wildlife Rescue.
Officials say due to recent complaints over doggie doo being left in the downtowns of various communities in Chatham-Kent, they wish to remind owners there’s a bylaw governing picking up after your pooch.
According to the bylaw, “Every owner of a dog shall remove forthwith and sanitarily dispose of excrement left by the dog anywhere in the municipality.”
If the animal control folks see you not scoop the poop, they can hand out a $240 fine.
