A Melbourne council has set a high new bar for penalising dog-walkers who don’t pick up after their pets.

The Casey Council will dish out $500 fines for leaving a dog poo behind.

Anyone caught walking without a dog poo bag will be fined $200.

Ben Smith, a professional dog-walker and the founder of the Cranbourne East Dog Owners Facebook page,¬†told Ross and John”it’s a bit tough”.

“It’s sending the message that not picking up your dog poo is just as dangerous as high-speed speeding,” he said.
