A WOMAN is decorating dog mess with strawberries and cream in a bid to make pet owners clean up after their animals.

Theresa Ritchie also carries Nutella in her handbag to spread on dog dirt on her way to work.

Theresa hopes her decorative technique will make lazy dog owners in Peterhead aware that someone is watching them.

Theresa, a member of Pick Up Peterhead, said: “People in Peterhead are regularly stepping on dog mess on the pavements.

“I wanted to highlight the problem in an amusing way.

“This shows people are watching dog owners who can’t be bothered to clean up after their pets.

“The food idea has showed that dog poo wasn’t being cleaned up by the council.

“It sometimes lies on the streets for around eight weeks.”
