Police horses defecating on Sydney’s iconic Bondi Beach

One of Bondi’s most recognisable residents is waging a campaign to rid the beach of mounted police who he says treat the national icon as a ‘horse toilet’.Speedo-wearing Dimitri Moskovich, who works out every day at Sydney’s most famous beach, is so upset about horse droppings on his beloved Bondi he confronted Prime Minister Malclom Turnbull last week.’Stop police horses coming here,’ Mr Moskovich told Mr Turnbull. ‘We don’t need horses here. It’s an abuse to our beach.’Taken aback, Mr Turnbull replied: ‘The horses presumably swim between the flags.’But Mr Moskovich was not amused.  ‘Doesn’t matter,’ he said. ‘They s**t on the sand, they s**t on the promenade.”You love the beach and it’s a disrespect to all of us.’Mr Turnbull then said: ‘You know, that issue has never been raised with me before.’But Mr Moskovich told Daily Mail Australia he had been trying for years to get police horses banned from Bondi Beach.’There is no reason for Bondi Beach, which is a national icon, to become a horse toilet,’ he said.Initially Mr Moskovich spoke to individual mounted officers, then took his complaints to Waverley Council and last week went to the prime minister.’I kept telling them there is no need for horses,’ the 52-year-old said. ‘I was telling them the horses should have bags under their bums.”Bondi Beach is a national icon and a national icon is being s**t on. It’s a disgrace to the whole nation.”Every time it’s like an assault. It’s a violation. I feel like somebody spits in my face.’I’m an animal lover. When I see a dog s***ts anywhere and the owner does not pick up I say “guys, please pick up”. At the same time you can’t say anything to the police.’Mr Moskovich, a property investor who can be found exercising at Bondi up to six hours a day, said he often had to warn tourists about the horse-made hazard on the promenade.’It doesn’t even occur to them that they can walk along Bondi promenade and they can walk in a huge heap of horse s***,’ he said. ‘It’s just wrong.”I’ve seen it on the sand as well but most of the time it’s on the promenade.’Eventually, council officers remove the manure. ‘It could be five hours later, it could be the next day,’ Mr Moskovich said.The Russian-born fitness fanatic, who has been pictured in polling booths on election days wearing only his Speedos as he votes, considers Bondi Beach his office.’If somebody is using your backyard or your balcony as a toilet you would get upset,’ he said. ‘It’s really upsetting.’Mr Moskovich has used his Facebook page to call for police horses to be banned from the beach.Social media reaction has mostly been supportive of Mr Moskovich’s campaign.’Coppers should collect their horses dung and grow roses with it,’ one user wrote.’Again with the walking s*** machines!’ another wrote. ‘How many riots have they stopped today…?’A third protested: ‘Dimi, I have made complaints to the council and to the police numerous times.’They aren’t going to do anything about it… But they will give you
