AN OUTRAGED resident in Bridlington has publicly shamed a dog offender whom she caught on camera letting his dog foul on her driveway, by posting his picture on Facebook.

Joanna Brown was “enraged” when she caught the brazen bloke on her home’s CCTV system walking off without picking up his dog’s mess.

The 60-year-old, decided to post his picture on social media in the hope of holding him to account.

Ms Brown said she hopes the man’s new-found publicity will encourage him to think twice about where he lets his pooch relieve itself.

“I couldn’t believe how brazen and brave he was,” she said.

“Obviously I was enraged. He obviously knew where his dog left its mess. I was pretty disgusted by what it did.

“He literally walked over, the dog did the mess, and he walked off.

“It’s a disgrace to dog owners,” Ms Brown added,

“It’s not the nicest job in the world but if you have a dog, you clean up after it.

“Dog mess is a problem around here, particularly on George Street.

“People should be aware that CCTV footage is on properties. A lot of people don’t have it, but more should be available for a more proactive response.”

A council spokesman added: “We will always investigate incidents of dog fouling and if we can identify the owners responsible we will challenge them and it can lead to us issuing a fixed penalty notice.
