A concerned resident has been handed a cash reward after reporting a dog owner who failed to clean up after their pet in Stafford.
The irresponsible dog owner was spotted in Wildwood and was slapped with a £75 fine for committing the offence.
And now the £75 has been handed over to the concerned resident as the fine was given thanks to the information provided to Stafford Borough Council.Hmmm....
Howard Thomas, head of environment and health at Stafford Borough Council, said the reward was well deserved.
He said: "Since launching the reward scheme in 2014 we have seen a huge amount of support for our efforts to get rid of this disgusting crime.
"It is only fair that those people who help us should be rewarded – with the inconsiderate dog owner the one that pays."Also the taxpayer who stumped up the cost of the prosecution. Shouldn't that too be paid by the dog owner?
