Steve Schuurman claims he was verbally abused by the woman after his dog cocked its leg to relieve itself
A row has erupted after a police staff member was said to have ordered a man to clean up his pet dog’s urine.
Steve Schuurman, 56, was walking his six-year-old pet Saluki rescue dog Margot through Bournemouth’s main square last week when she cocked her leg to relieve herself.
As the NHS worker walked off, he claims an “aggressive” female member of Dorset Police shouted at him “clear your f-----g dog p--s”.
He said when he challenged her, a council community safety patrol officer allegedly threatened to have him arrested if he did not move on.
Dorset Police and Bournemouth Council had a stall and van in the seaside town’s centre as part of a “day of action” after several high-profile crimes, including a fatal stabbing, in the area.
