LETTERS: Snarled at by foul-mouthed, anti-social dog owner

Published: 6 January, 2016

• SCENE: Highbury Fields, 12.20pm, December 24. Dog has just defecated on grass. Me to dog owner: “Hello, perhaps you could pick that up. I understand it is dangerous in the event that it gets on the hands of small children.”

Dog owner to me: “Why don’t you f*** off?”

Apart from the sad lack of Christmas cheer, it is particularly disappointing that some individuals are so anti-social and ignorant. Perhaps a good New Year resolution would be for all such dog-owners to Google the word “toxocariasis”. A New Year resolution to desist from using offensive language would also be very welcome.
