When visiting my family grave at Park Lane, Kidderminster Cemetery on Boxing Day to place flowers, we were horrified to see dog mess directly in front of the headstone and most of the turf dug up. This is not the fault of the dog but the result of irresponsible pet owners.

There must be bylaws to fine irresponsible dog owners who do not pick up their dog’s mess and this should be enforced.

Also, are there any signs enforcing the bylaw? If there are no signs the council should erect some.

Otherwise there needs to be a ban on dog walkers in this cemetery as there is a perfectly good park nearby.
