A man who failed to clean up after his dog has also been fined for dropping litter.
Council environmental enforcement officers were on patrol at Dafen Pond when the man, who was with his son, failed to pick up his dog’s mess.
Whilst he was being issued with a fixed penalty notice for the offence, he threw down his cigarette end, despite being told by officers he would be committing a further offence for dropping litter.
He was then issued with a second fixed penalty notice for £75.
Officers also caught a woman throwing a bag of dog mess into the bushes; she too was given a fixed penalty notice for littering.
Executive Board Member for Environmental and Public Protection Cllr Jim Jones said: “Officers carry out patrols across the county and anyone caught failing to clean up after their dog or dropping litter will be fined.
“I am astounded that someone picked up their dog’s mess but then threw it into the bushes instead of waiting until they found a bin.
“I am also shocked that someone went on to litter right in front of officers after being caught for a dog fouling offence.
“I hope these people have learnt their lesson and I also hope that other members of the public take notice. We are determined to keep Carmarthenshire clean for both residents and visitors.”
