Greg Martin has had enough.
"Dog poo after dog poo after dog poo," Mr Martin said waving his hands in exasperation.
"Hill Street is a dog poo hotspot."
Mr Martin - a dog owner himself - cannot understand why people won't pick up after their pets.
In April Mr Martin marched into Port Macquarie-Hastings Council to report the problem.
He was curtly told to take photographic evidence and come back.
"What good is that going to do?" he said.
Mr Martin believes he shouldn't have to "risk his life" by confronting dog owners.
"Why should the public have to be put in danger when it is a council ranger's job?"
With no movement from council the Hill Street resident went to the media.
Port News promised to get to the bottom of it but unfortunately a federal election got in the way.
When we did come back to it council directed us to its website.
According to said website "Dog owners are [also] required to promptly dispose of any faeces which their dog may leave anywhere other than your own property".
Council slaps dog owners a $275 fine for failing to remove poo.
In 2018, in a subtle hint to dog owners, council started selling dog poo bags for a measly five dollars.
The bags apparently are "environmentally friendly degradable bags that break down, reducing the impact on the beach, ocean and vegetation".
But Mr Martin has a point - who is policing the dog poo "hotspot" of Port Macquarie?
