Question about fly tipping

Response to this request is long overdue. By law, under all circumstances, Wrexham County Borough Council should have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

Dear Wrexham County Borough Council,

I have read and seen on a social media site this morning of a fox being strung up on a sign post at the T junction of Llanrhaeaadr, Maengwynedd and Cymdu. It has been on several social media sites so I am sure you will be aware of it.

As this is on a public highway and foot path, I would like to know if this is an offence. This is surely a form of fly tipping as well as a health hazard to the public. If this is not an offence, would that mean that someone would be free to hang a dog or a cat from your street signs on a public highway?

I would also like to know if this has been investigated? If it has not could you tell me why?

Yours faithfully,

Rita Harding

foi, Wrexham County Borough Council
