So i went out to mow the lawn last Saturday and stepped in this. This lady had a poop bag in her hand that she could have used or at least come back and get it later.. nope!

I'd leave it on HER lawn with a note that says "I thought you should have this since your dog did not pick it up." :poop:

Don't get me wrong...we have 4 dogs, they're penned, get walked daily and we pick up PLENTY of poo....about 2 per day per dog. That being said, some cities have ordinances that address her infraction and a fine can be in order. Here's an excellent one, IMO, in Columbia, Missouri: Pet Waste Ordinance
_________________________________

City of Columbia Ordinance

The City of Columbia requires pet owners living within the Columbia city limits to clean up any waste left by their pets when on public or private property not their own.

Section 5-67 of Chapter 5 of the City of Columbia Code of Ordinances (Ord. No. 14881 § 1, 6-17-96; Ord. No. 14903, § 1, 7-15-96) states,

  1. No person owning or responsible for a dog shall permit the dog to defecate on any public property or right of way or on any private property other than property owned or leased by the person owning or responsible for the dog.
  2. It is a specific defense to a charge of violating this section that the person charged immediately removed the excrement and properly disposed of it in a sanitary manner.
  3. It is a specific defense to a charge of violating this section that the dog involved is a certified working dog trained to assist disabled individuals and that the person charged has a disability which prevents the individual from removing the excrement and properly disposing of it in a sanitary manner.
Pet owners may be issued a fine for violating this ordinance if:
  • Observed doing so by an Animal Control officer
  • If someone else observes the violation taking place and is willing to testify about the matter in Municipal Court.
Pet waste is a threat to the health of our community
  • Pet waste left on the ground washes into local waterways
  • Pet waste is a major source of E.coli pollution in local streams.
Always use a bag or scooper to clean up your pet’s waste and dispose of it in a nearby trash receptacle.

We have been very lucky that everyone who walks their dogs by our house picks up. We have a boulevard tree that seems to be the local dog “pee-tree” so they all stop at it on there walks.

I had a man always let his dog poop on my corner. I picked it all up and kept a weeks worth and then drove to his driveway and threw it in HIS yard. His wife was watching me like I was a terrorist or something. I just shrugged my shoulders and drove off proudly with my company name on my truck. The guy changed his route after that :)

If AOC gets "wind" of this canine activity (sorry, couldn't help myself), she might introduce legislation that will make it illegal for dogs to defecate at all...they'll just have to quit.

Of course, no alternate method of processing food and its subsequent byproducts will be proposed.

In any event, I have a gut feeling (sorry again) that our dogs will refuse to comply. :poop::poop::poop::poop:

For our 4 it's a utility co. pole. My wife calls it the "community bulletin board" for the dogs. They read it with their noses, then post their own notice prior to departure...something like "Coco was here, too". :cool:

We have a small island at the entrance of our subdivision and I have caught many people letting their dogs go there. I have politely posted to our facebook page asking everyone to pick up after their pets as I mow that portion and do not like to step in it. Next time I catch it, I will be posting the culprit to facebook :rofl:

The same thing happened to me, which I caught on camera and shared with my neighbors on Nextdoor. Very quickly the people along my street identified the address of the "poopetrator", and soon made a habit of tossing his poop bags back into his yard. He moved away a few months ago, so fortunately I've had no "gifts" in plastic bags wind up in my front yard as of late.

One interesting "old school" tactic that came up in the Nextdoor discussion: if someone's dog keeps pooping in your yard, and that person refuses to clean it up, just pour bacon grease over the poop. The next time the dog visits, he'll clean up his own mess. It shouldn't take more than one or two such treatments before the dog's owner learns to steer clear of your property.

I did put the video on the Nextdoor app and haven't seen the woman or the dogs since the incident. I have 3 dogs and religiously pick up after them just like any normal human being that isn't lazy. If i see her in the neighborhood, i would be happy to deliver plenty of poop back to her!

I've grown to hate dog owners because of this very issue with their dog's poop.

Scenario A:
Step 1. Buy a house with a yard.
Step 2. Get a dog.
Step 3. Train your dog to poop on someone else's yard, but never yours.
Result: Your yard stays free of your dog's poop and mess.​

Scenario B:
Step 1. Buy a house.
Step 2. Install a toilet.
Step 3. Always use your neighbors toilet, but never yours.
Result: Your bathroom stays free of your own feces and mess.​

I see no differences in those two scenarios. Neither one is acceptable to me.

My feelings in a nutshell: Take your dog for a walk ... exercise them ... get as many dogs as you want. But, train them to use your yard, and only your yard to poop and urinate.

Update:
Lady was walking dogs this morning and saw me in front of the house. She stopped and turned around so i followed her back to where she lives. I now know where to leave the poop.

"The Burbs". Perhaps one of the funniest movies ever made. :)
