From THE TELEGRAPH:
Surrey County Council chiefs have discussed packing a field with cattle after a spate of complaints about outdoor public sex. More than 300 residents of Puttenham have written to the council complaining that a field near the Hog’s Back lay-by on the A31 was ‘being used for all kinds of sexual activity night and day’ by doggers.
They said that children at the Puttenham Church of England Infant School can see the couples from the playground and demanded the council ‘do something about it’.
Surrey County Council, however, refused to shut the lay-by and Hog’s Back Cafe down saying it would be ‘unfair on legitimate visitors’, but discussed various tactics to stop doggers congregating at the site – including putting bulls in the field.
Campaigner Jules Perkins said she was ‘devastated’ when the council said it would not close the lay-by. Speaking about the idea of putting bulls into the field to deter the doggers, Mrs Perkins said: “I have to say that some of the comments from the cabinet were quite frightening, such as the suggestion to put bulls in the field. What a ridiculous idea.”
Local Sarah Green, 32, said today: “How the council can sit there with straight faces and suggest putting a herd of bulls in a field to stop people having sex in it is almost too ridiculous to contemplate. Do they really think a bunch of perverts are going to be put off by a few bulls in a field? It will probably make them even more excited.”
COMMENT: Actually, Sarah, I think a field full of bulls would put all but the most stupid exhibitionist off taking his pants off al fresco. And the bulls would have a absolutely spiffin’ time chasing any half naked humans, foolish enough to brave it, around the field. I don’t think we should deny them their opportunity for such fun.
