I'm appalled by the claims that East Devon District Council proposes dogs be kept on leads in parks and playing fields due to dog fouling. I'm a responsible dog owner and always pick up my dog's pooh. Why are you penalising everyone for this, and not the irresponsible few? In the past, I have reported to East Devon District Council dog owners who don't pick up after their dogs. And what did the council do - nothing!They need evidence and witnesses..... what more evidence do you need!!There are only two parks in Seaton where you can walk your dog off the lead. Please, don't take this away from us.Mrs CowellSeaton
