Ban dogs from all public places
It is seldom that I agree with Ian O'Doherty; however, he is spot on when he explains why dog owners have such a bad reputation.
I am acutely aware of the dog fouling problem because I have to keep my eyes peeled at all times while walking in Limerick city. It gets a bad rap for litter in general, but it takes the biscuit when it comes to dog faeces.
O'Doherty highlighted the worst aspect of this problem -- the risk to public health from toxocariasis.
