Dog Fouling – successful prosecution.

A Cliftonville resident has been prosecuted at Canterbury Magistrates Court for not clearing up after her dog on two different occasions.
Helan Ann Eade of Northdown Road, Cliftonville failed to turn up at court on Tuesday, 18 June and was found guilty in her absence for both offences. The first offence occurred on the 12 February 2013 and the second on the 20 February 2013 in Dalby Square, Cliftonville.

The court fined Ms Eade a total of £620.  The fine breakdown; £150 for each of the two offences of giving inaccurate information, £100 for each of the offences and £20 victim surcharge.
Cabinet Member for Business, Corporate and Regulatory Services, Councillor Michelle Fenner, said: “This is another successful prosecution for Thanet District Council’s Dog Wardens and Environmental Enforcement officers.
“This prosecution shows that if you don’t clear up after your dog we will prosecute, and you cannot escape by giving incorrect details. Local Residents should not have to put up with this type of anti-social behaviour and our Dog Wardens and Enforcement teams will continue to work hard to ensure culprits are caught and dealt with as appropriate.”
