The owner of the Munden Estate in Watford is asking locals to respect his private property and pick up their dog poop bags and rubbish when coming for a walk.
Henry Holland-Hibbert laid around 80 dog poop bags and the rubbish found out on the pathway to make a point of what people are doing.
He said the issue increased during lockdown when he opened up more routes to people.
Speaking to GarstonNews he mentioned: “My wife and I do all the maintenance of the land and pick up the litter. This is private land so the council doesn’t come here and there are no dog bins because we would have to empty them.”
He emphasised how certain people are abusing his land, adding: “On Saturday I found a pair of children’s pants hanging on a fence and they were full of human excrement. This is disgusting and it is not natural human society.
“We’ve got about a 1000 people a day coming through here and they need to understand this is a private home, there’s nobody else who comes to pick up the litter except me.
“People say why don’t you put up CCTV cameras, well I could, but I know it’s a big expense and on top of that I simply don’t have the time in the evening to scroll through CCTV footage.”
