Hunt is on for foreign Centaur pooing in a Somerset car park
TO Misterton, Somerset, where the hunt is on for the ‘person’ who has taken to leaving a pile of poo in the middle of the village hall car park.
Booking clerk Lorraine Clarke has a hunch:
“Obviously we get dog walkers and different things like that up here but to be honest, by the size of it – unless it was a huge dog the size of a horse – it’s not a dog. It has got to be human because it is a fair pile and it’s got toilet paper – and I don’t see many dogs going around with a loo roll. It’s been going on long enough now. We want to know who is responsible.”
The pile of poo is large enough to be from a horse but is most likely human? Having seen the massive size of a horse’s turd this human suspect is a big one with a keen appetite.
Adds Mrs Clarke:
“We put a sign up there a few months ago on the recommendation of the police and the person actually ripped the sign off and did it on the sign. Now we have put the signs up saying if you do make a mess it will be a £2,500 fine and then there are pictures so it’s perfectly plain for anyone who doesn’t speak English.”
We’re looking for a foreigner with horse-sized bowels?
Misterton Parish Councillor Diane Bradly has more:
“It might just jog people’s memory – then they may think, ‘Oh yes I did see something weird up there’ – and then they may remember who was doing it. It’s actually a health hazard, it’s not very pleasant at all and I can assure you it is not very pleasant clearing it up.”
Because when all said and done if you see a human being braying like a horse and pooing in the middle of a public car park it’s something easy to forget…
