My regular walk around central Tamahere increasingly involves negotiating steaming piles of horse dung.
Over days if not weeks the big piles of poo lie like landmines, ready to trip the unwary walker, runner or cyclist.
Responsible dog owners carry poop scoops and plastic bags to carry away their pets’ droppings. Why not horse riders?
I’m aware of four sites currently – two piles on the footpath on Wiremu Tamihana Dr, one on Airport Rd by the roundabout and one on the Violet McKenzie walkway.
I’ve been told of other piles in Tamahere Park.
Please can the horse riders responsible for this foul litter consider other community members and take steps to remove it.
Options would seem to be to put dung catchers on their mounts or get down off their high horses and pick up and take their excrement home with them.
