I AGREE with the writer of the “fine them letter” (Star, February 13) berating some irresponsible dog owners.

It is refreshing the writer recognises that there are responsible dog owners. 

However, I would dispute the amount of dog fouling they describe. 

I agree some moronic people choose to not pick up after their pets, as do quite a lot of other people who leave full rolled up baby nappies and litter from takeaways.

Fining people needs to cover all these things, not just the dog problem.
