If you have noticed the lack of doggy poop bags in town dispensers, rest assured the town is aware of the situation.  However, the Town of Cochrane wishes to remind dog owners to remember to take their own doggy poop bags with them on their walk. 

Laurie Drukier with the Town of Cochrane wants to remind residents that:

"Animal Bylaw does require dog owners to carry a means of picking up their dog poop. So we like to remind people that those bags supplied courtesy of the parks department are just for back-up purposes, they are not meant to be your sole source."

Due to circumstances beyond their control, the town has been unable to get the bags.  However, they are working on rectifying the situation.  In the meantime, remember to take your bags with you and help keep our town clean.
