Most Dutch Municipalities Suffer from Excrement

More than half of Dutch municipalities report that they suffer from dog excrement. Citizens there regularly complain about these problems. The problems are larger in bigger towns than in small communities. This results from research presented on the First National Symposium on Dog Policies. According to the Central Bureau of Statistics, dog excrement is the number one irritation in the Netherlands. The number of dogs in the Netherlands is estimated to be around 1.5 million. At the Symposium, a Professor of Veterinary health from Utrecht University will speak. He claims that dog excrement is not only a nuisance, but can also be lethal due to the worms in it.
