Comment by Rocket on 20th December 2009 at 01:13
Idiot!!!!!!!!! put something proper on


Comment by David on 20th December 2009 at 11:05
Abusive comment!


Comment by rubyshoes on 20th December 2009 at 11:19
Actually Rocket, it is something proper, as you put it.

It shows how lazy, dirty and thoughtless some people can be. If this photo makes some people think, then Mick has acted in the interest of the public. So well done Mick.

I actually think it is something proper. If it stirs the conscience of some people then Mick has done a service.


Comment by Cyril on 20th December 2009 at 11:59
You've been busy out and about this week Mick.

People dump stuff at these gates and don't realise that they and their vehicles registration are being monitored by cameras, they will get a nice surprise when they receive a fine for illegal dumping through the post, if they read the notices on the gates they would realise this.


Comment by Tricia on 20th December 2009 at 12:11
Ignore it David. Have you seen the time it was posted ????
Enough said.

Keep up the good work Mick, and thank you for taking the time


Comment by Margaret on 20th December 2009 at 15:18
I agree with nearly all the comments.
Unfortunately fly tipping is now a feature of today's society,not only in Wigan and it's local beauty spots but all over the country. Therefore the photograph, whilst not pretty to look at, is very relevant and deserves its place in Photo-a-Day.
It's this "not in my back yard" mentality of a few low-lifes who have to go and spoil everything for the vast majority of law abiding people.

Is that the building where they used to re-cycle (electrocute) unwanted pets in a giant roll-top pencil case.


Comment by Tricia on 20th December 2009 at 17:42
Hi Dave
My husband says yes, that that is the same building.
I think it also used to be a Workhouse ??? Please correct me if I am wrong.
Merry Christmas to all


Comment by Cyril on 20th December 2009 at 17:55
Thank God that type of euthanisation of pets has long gone Dave, it was a very cruel and often a violent end for the animals, as very often dogs would be left for the operator to deal with and understandably out of fear they could get snarly, and I am sure plenty of people will remember the reporting of what frequently happened in order to get the animals into that electrocution box. Thank the local animal charities for their campaigning and for getting that awful place closed down.


Comment by David on 20th December 2009 at 20:19
The workhouse was on the opposite side of the road, where Frog Lane Hospital used to be.

It Speaks Volumes to me
