Man almost loses foot to dog poo

A rugby player almost lost his foot after standing in dog poo.

Jonny Stiles, who plays for Newport Rugby Club in South Wales, was hospitalised for six days after a cut on his foot got infected by the canine's faeces which was left on the pitch during training.

Doctors managed to save the 29-year-old sportsman's foot although he has urged owners to clean up after the pooches.

He told the Daily Star newspaper: "We just ask dog owners to have some respect and clean up their dog's mess."
