The pupil council at a Rutherglen primary school have started their own campaign against dog fouling.
While some misguided individual is placing white powder around lampposts in Burnside in their own attempt to halt the problem, the children of Burgh Primary have taken a more structured and mature approach.
The pupil council organised a school wide poster competition, with the theme aimed at getting dog owners to clean up their canine’s poo.
However there’s other projects in the pipeline, as it’s a problem the pupils have had enough of.
Student Chloe Huskie (10) said: “We have to be eco friendly. It’s not right. People know what to do. It only takes two seconds to clean it up.”
