Witham: Dad's CCTV plan to stop lazy dog owners
11:22am Thursday 12th September 2013 in News
A dad who has been forced to pick up more than 100 piles of dog poo from his front garden is resorting to installing a CCTV camera.
Jay Abbott, 39, of Brent Close, Witham, has kept a tally over the last five years of how many owners have let their pets foul in his open front garden but has now reached breaking point.
The dad-of-three is having a CCTV camera installed in a bid to catch the culprits.
He said: “I have a dog myself and I have children and we all pick up our dog’s mess.
“I have a friend who has injuries to his hand and he still picks up after his dog.
“I have picked 109 piles of other people’s dog mess, I kept a tally like you see on a prison wall but the mistake I made is I didn’t write down the dates."
