St Gerard’s School pupils (from left) Arn Cuthbertson (8), Freddie Ryan (8), George Donaldson (8) and Quinn Breen (7) reluctantly hold some of the 45 bags of dog poo they stumbled across while picking up rubbish on the Otago Central Rail Trail on Monday.

The find is just one of many for the school this year after a corner of the school’s playground was used as a regular dumping ground for dog poo, until a camera was set up to deter the culprit.

Central Otago District Council regulatory services manager Lee Webster said more security cameras would be considered for the area. REPORT & PHOTO: ALEXIA JOHNSTON
