Is this how you dispose of your dog poo?

Dog Poo Bag Saggart

In recent months, the presence of dog poo bags being left in woodland areas is becoming more common. As you can see from this image which was taken in August in a woodland area in Saggart the poo bag is swinging from a tree. Dog owners may think bagging up after their pet is the best thing to do, but the ‘poo bag’ needs to be disposed of correctly in a bin not left in the woodland. The plastic bag will take anywhere from 10 years – 1000 years to decompose.
