A homeowner is furious at a dog owner living in an adjacent building who has let his animals do wees and poos on his tiled roof twice a day, allowing the “pungent” smells to waft into his neighbours’ windows.
Mr Xue, who lives in the residential area of Dongjia Long in Hangzhou, capital of Zhejiang Province in East China, finally had enough of the fouls tench and posted about his experiences on Chinese forum ‘19lou’.
In an attached video, Mr Xue can be seen filming the slanted tile roof of the neighbouring building, where two dogs, including a German shepherd, are roaming free.
The German shepherd does a casual poo as the second, smaller dog, sniffs it and runs around. Their owner is nowhere in sight.
Mr Xue, who lives in Block 4, across from the dogs in three-storey Block 3, told local media: “The neighbour living across from me has been a dog owner for years. The smaller dog he’s had for about a year.
“Every morning at 8am or 9am, and again in the afternoon at 5pm or 6pm, his dogs are on the roof.”
The dogs, which live in the attic above the third floor, gain access to the roof via a skylight without a window.
Mr Xue claims the owner, who also raises pigeons, “walks” his pooches on the roof instead of on the ground.
He said: “In the summer (when the windows are open) I can smell the dog poo. It’s very pungent.
“When we hang out washing to dry in the mornings, we can smell it too.”
Mr Xue said the dog owner contacted him on 19lou after spotting his forum post, responding privately: “Hello, the dogs have been sent away and it won’t happen again.
“I will hire someone to sort out [the dog poo]. Obviously, I can’t do it myself – it’s not safe.”
He also requested that Mr Xue remove his forum post, the fed-up neighbour said, but he has yet to do so.
Local authorities have promised to speak to the owner about his dogs, which it was reported have been sent to a farm.
They would also monitor the sanitation of his pigeons, officers said.
