The Lake District is as we all know the best area in the UK and one of the best in the world for hiking. Miles and miles of great footpaths well mapped and a plethora of guides from Wainwright, Birkett and others.
No wonder then that so many people enjoy this beautiful corner of England with mans best friend. But there is a secret menace and the good folk of Buttermere are fighting back against the poop.
As can be seen on the Lakeland Walker Facebook page and others this is a subject which really gets people going with the majority of dog owners who are responsible being tinted by the irresponsible few.
