A dog owner had his picture shared dozens of times for allowing his pet to “do its business” on a Bridlington woman’s drive.
Unbeknown to the mystery offender, resident Joanna Brown caught the “brazen” act on her home’s CCTV system.
And following the dirty deed, 50-year-old Joanna took to social media - plastering the Wellington Street incident all over Facebook.
“I couldn’t believe how brazen and brave he was,” said Joanna.
“Obviously I was enraged. He obviously knew where his dog left its mess. I was pretty disgusted by what it did.
“He literally walked over, the dog did the mess, and he walked off,” she added.
The footage was filmed on Thursday (May 26), and has circulated dozens of times on Facebook.
Joanna said she hopes the man’s new-found publicity will encourage him to think twice about where he lets his pooch relieve itself.
“It’s a disgrace to dog owners,” Joanna added, “It’s not the nicest job in the world but if you have a dog, you clean up after it.
“Dog mess is a problem around here, particularly on George Street.
“People should be aware that CCTV footage is on properties. A lot of people don’t have it, but more should be available for a more proactive response.”
A council spokesman added: "Dog fouling is unacceptable and we are working with residents to rid communities of it.
"We will always investigate incidents of dog fouling and if we can identify the owners responsible we will challenge them and it can lead to us issuing a fixed penalty notice.
"The more information residents can provide the better targeted the council's response will be. Clear descriptions of the dogs, the owners and the times at which fouling happens help the dog wardens to know when to visit and what to look out for."
