The man in charge of punishing dog owners on Bute who fail to clean up after their pets has renewed an appeal for the public’s help in catching the culprits.

Jim Ferguson, who is Argyll and Bute Council’s amenities warden for the Bute and Cowal area, went on a late-night patrol after explaining his many and varied duties to members of Bute Community Council.

“I’ve lost count of the number of things we’ve tried,” he told BCC’s members, “but with limited resources we are always grateful for the help of the public.

“My mobile number is in the public domain and the council has a hotline for reporting dog fouling incidents.”

Mr Ferguson’s mobile number is 077 9890 4446, while the council’s hotline is 01546 605514. Incidents can also be reported by dialling 101, Police Scotland’s non-emergency contact number.
