Dog mess and dead animals on the street

Dog mess

Dog mess is unhealthy, anti-social, unpleasant and can potentially transfer disease to humans via the Toxocara roundworm whose eggs live in dog mess.

If children come in contact with the eggs they can cause an upset stomach, sore throat, asthma and in rare cases, blindness. The eggs can stay alive in the soil for many years.
