‘If I find out where you live I will post it through your letterbox’
An infuriated neighbour resorted to taping a note and two bags of dog poo to their wall because an owner kept letting their dog defecate in their flower beds and didn’t pick it up after.
A photograph shared on Reddit shows the note taped to a wall with the two bags of faeces below it.
The author of the note not only voiced their anger at the dog’s deposits in their garden, but also threatened the owner with a £1,000 fine if they were caught, warning them that they would be putting cameras up.
They went as far to say that if they found out where the owner lives, they would post the poo back through their front door.
The note reads: “To whom this may concern, this is your dog sh*t. I have a dog of my own and I use dog bags, pick it up and take it home. Cameras are going up. It is £1,000 fine.
“Also if I find out where you live I will post it through your letterbox. Stop your dog sh***ing in my flower beds.”
The post certainly prompted some debate on the platform, with many supporting the miffed neighbour.
One person wrote: “I mean you have to be some of the lowest of the low to let your pet shit somewhere and think ‘welp not my problem’. Since I’ve become a dog owner a few years ago my stance on this has only strengthened.”
Another said: “Straight to the point. No bulls**t. Clear and effective. 10/10. This is how you handle this situation.”
Someone else didn’t hold back, saying that if you don’t clean up after your dog then “you are a c**t.”
Others had similar tales of inconsiderate dog owners.
One person wrote: “I got into trouble on our local Facebook group because I posted a photo of 2 people chatting while their dogs s**t on my lawn. Apparently I was in the wrong for showing their faces. Funnily enough, no one lets their dogs shit on my lawn anymore.”
Another Redditor recalled an occasion when one “asshole” picked up their dog’s poo with a bag before launching it “thirty feet right up to my house.”
It feels like there might be a deeper rivalry at play in that one.
