SMS to report on dog owners who don't clean up after their pet

281_f8f1fqfaji.jpeg Tipping the police of a crime by SMS is nothing new, but reporting on dog poop is. To the best of my knowledge.

According to About My Area, Stockport Council recently launched a new text message alert system to crack down on irresponsible dog owners. The new system allows residents who witness dog owners failing to clear up their pets foul to report the incident via a text message directly to the Council's Dog Warden Service.

The following information is requested in the text:

-- Specific date and time of the fouling.

-- Specific location of the fouling.

-- Brief description of dog and the owner.

-- The name of the person texting (if they are willing to provide this).
