"I spend so much time cleaning up litter in parks the fact I got a fine is ironic."

Dontcha think?

Look lady... you wouldn't groom your dogs at home, put the hair in a bag, take it to the park and dump it in the ground

Pay the fine and stop throwing your farking garbage around.

Don't ever visit Gettysburg National Park. There are so many half-decayed apples lying around everywhere that you'll be outraged. Thousands and thousands of them.

I saw a goose shed a feather on a walkway the other day. I fined it for littering. I got hissed at, so I fined it for disturbing the peace. Then it shiat on my car so I fined it for vandalism. Then it bit me so I fined it for attempted murder.

So, if the dog rubbed its back against a tree and some clumps of hair came off would the owner still be responsible for littering?

I stepped in goose poo the other day and left a big mess on the ground and my shoes. The geese fined me for infringing their copyright by creating an unlicensed derivative work.

Woman brushing her dogs in park fined for littering

Yes...because she was littering.  Asinine tag is either for the woman or for subby, I assume.

Cleaning up after brushing isn't even hard.  The farking hair stays stuck on the farking comb until you pull it off.  The only way for it to end up on the ground is for the woman to intentionally pull it off the comb and intentionally just drop it in the park.
 
2013-07-20 06:03:43 AM
I don't think some of you realize just how much hair you can get out of a good sized dog.  It can really be a mess.

Littering is littering, how is dog hair any different than food wrappers or soda cans? Those kind of dogs have particularly thick coats and with the "heat wave" they're having there I'm sure they were shedding quite a bit. What I find particularly hilarious is how she says she always picks up litter when she's at the park yet shes shocked that it wasn't ok to just leave a pile of her precious dogs hair lying on the ground.

CSB-  I was driving down the road tossing peanut shells out the window of the car. A fellow driver called the police on me for hugging the center line. He assumed I was drinking. Soon came a cop and pulled me over. While he's running my plates, etc... I continue on eating my peanuts and the shells were beginning to pile up outside the window. He asked if I had been drinking and I said no. He told me what the safety conscious driver told him about me hugging the line and I said I would be more aware. He said he could cite me for the shells on the street too. Offensive Littering he called it. I asked him if he wanted me to pick them up and he said no. I left with only a warning or improper lane use.

A paper food wrapper will break down a lot faster than hair will. On average a piece of paper will take 1-3 months where hair can take 12-15 months.

Aside from being a natural substance rather than man-made, birds often use hair for nesting material.  Why do cops hate birds?

Who says litter has to be man made material? Tell you what, I'm going to be mowing my yard and trimming some trees/hedges tomorrow, you wont mind if I dump my pile of clipping/branches in your yard right? After all, it's natural.

The solution is obviously to build special receptacles to place into all parks for potential bird nesting material to be dumped into. Birds will get an ecological benefit, regular park goers will no longer have to deal with any messy materials on the nice English lawns in the parks, the politicians will get to write new regulations for the new initiative, and the creation of a bird-hair-receptacle industry will lead to job creation. Taxes will need to go up slightly, but such is the price of civilization.

It's almost seems that these British "enforcers" just love to be ridiculed in the tabloid press.

Just like school board members and administrators over here love to be ridiculed when they call in the swat team if a kid brings a plastic knife to school.

In most other professions if you do something stupid, especially f you get press for it you are out.

There is nothing natural about our pets.

The number of, and types of, dogs we keep as pets are not naturally sustainable.  Without people purchasing them, providing for them, and raising them as pets - these dogs would never exist in such numbers.  The amount of land and wildlife required to keep a wild dog alive is far more than we could allocated to each dog, particularly in population dense areas like cities.  In rural Iowa - sure - let your dog crap in the middle of your 10 acres of land.  It can crap for an entire lifetime and you'll never have a problem.

But open a park in the middle of New York, or London....and suddenly you've got a park the size of a city block that has 200 dogs pooping in it, each day.  That's not natural.

Yes, dogs shed.  Their coats and shedding habits were the result of evolution, until people got involved.  Now we buy whatever dog is 'pretty'.  That dog was meant to live in places like Siberia (no seriously, that's where the Siberian Huskie comes from) - but it is pretty, so let's have it in the UK!  So the AMOUNT of shedding that dog will do is hardly natural.

So you've got an unnatural population density of dogs that are unnaturally suited for their environment.  I find it hard to buy the, 'But it is natural' argument.

And even if I did - so what?  Being natural isn't justification.  Violence is natural.  Sex is natural.  Nudity is natural....none of these things are widely accepted by modern societies, certainly not in public parks.

Giant clumps of dog hair *is* litter.  And she left them *in a public park*.  That makes her guilty of littering.

If everyone that went to the park left behind that amount of liter the park would be trashed in a few weeks.

Other than the fact that loose hair from brushing a dog is not a problem.  Enforcing rules to control behavior that isn't actually causing problems just wastes time and degrades quality of life.

The lady had a golden retriever and a german shepherd...I think you're underestimating the amount of hair these guys produce in a single brushing session.  Easily enough to create a whole new dog's worth of hair.  Definitely littering.

I was really won over by your argument .. I read it three times and yes you are right.

But and here is the rub, "If everyone that went to the park left behind that amount of liter the park would be trashed in a few weeks." - do you really live in a community where that is remotely likely? I would bet close to everything I own on fact that even if every single dog owner in the area brushed their dogs fur whilst in a pack (oh the humanity) that we would notice it not at all.

Tis a very boring park when we cut down every offending tree that drops a leaf.

How about we deal with petrol fumes and a ton of other truly worrisome issues rather than enforcing the letter of the law over the spirit, just because you can doesn't mean you should.

PS - industrial rubbish (and surely fast food is an industry) is not the same as dog hair (or for that matter peanut shells.)  But I am still wondering if orange peal is stepping over the line or not ... so far I am thinking it is ok because their are a lot of things living in a heathy park that will dispose of it ... but maybe our parks are not meant to be organic but industrial.

Dog hair actually makes great bird's nests. We do just that we take his hair and dump it in an area song birds live. It i gone within 48 hours and I've found it in a good number of nests when I went looking.

Notice that beauticians do not ply their trade in parks either. All that shorn mop top going to waste in the rubbish bin, birds could have used it to make a nest. D'oh.

Have you ever owned a long hair dog like a shepherd? I don't think they fined her for a few lose hairs, when you brush a dog like that while it's shedding it comes off in giant gobs. Add to that the high heat they're experiencing over there right now and it probably looked something like this:

Yup. That and most of the "lolz, wuts the big deal with some dog poopz and hair laying around?" probably don't live anywhere where they have a neighbor within 20 miles.  The whole point isn't one pile of dog poop or hair from one dog, but if you allow it then you may have dozens of people doing that or something similar.
 
2013-07-20 08:17:16 AM
Goddamn, we can carry on a heated argument about anything. She probably left behind a crap-ton of hair, some cop said, "Really? Throw that in the dog-crap can it looks stupid."
"Nope."
"Fine."
"FINE!"
"No really, it's a fine. Here. "

I would totally watch Hairicane
