The Keep Britain Tidy Group has called for stronger action by local authorities against dog fouling of footpaths, playgrounds and parks. An estimated 226,000 complaints relating to dog fouling have been made in a three year period to June 2002, and councils have prosecuted only 754 people for leaving dogs' poo, during these three years.
