A woman was left so incensed by dog owners repeatedly failing to pick up their pets’ mess that she decided to take action and pin a sweary poster up outside a primary school
Anyone who has ever found themselves treading in a fresh pile of still-warm dog poop in their smart new work shoes will understand the particular type of fury this elicits.
However, few of us would go as far as to vent our rage in poster form, airing our thoughts on “lazy” dog owners for all the world to see.
Now, a woman from Littleborough, near Rochdale, Greater Manchester, has done just that, letting her feelings be known loud and clear after pinning a profanity-laden poster up on a telegraph pole in her local area.
The poster in question – which contains a stream of four-letter words you probably wouldn’t use during a nice family game of Scrabble – urges dog owners, in no uncertain terms, to “stop letting your dog s**t all over the pavement”.

The laminated poster, which was displayed outside a local primary school, was typed up in bold, capitalised red lettering for extra emphasis, making it immediately evident that the writer was not best pleased.
The bluntly-worded letter reads as follows: “Stop letting your dog s**t all over the pavement. You lazy f*****g c**t, pick it up and f*****g dispose of it you f*****g trampy little t**t”.
Some admired her no-holds-barred approach, with one person remarking that it was “straight to the point”.
Another commented that it was “certainly direct”.
A third person approved of the overall message of cracking down on poop, but clarified “Not if kids are reading it”.
However, others weren’t so keen on her tough approach, with one person branding it as “disgusting”, adding that they “think I prefer the s**t to the language”.
Another tutted: “Outside St Mary’s school as well”.
