THE GOVERNMENT have slapped a ban on dog walkers finding the decomposing remains of missing people, it has emerged.
The move comes, after a woman’s decomposed body was discovered by a man walking his dog earlier this month.
A Home Office spokesman said this morning: “Anyone caught walking their dog who stumbles across a dead body in a ditch or woodland will be dealt with by the full force of the law.
“Finding dead bodies is the work of the Missing Persons Unit, landscape forensic analysts, and psychics…not an inexperienced member of the public walking their Dalmatian along a dirt track.”
The legislation will also incorporate joggers, who, according to statistics, are the second most likely group to come across a missing person’s decomposing corpse.
