Knowing how some dog-owners are irresponsible about cleaning up after their mutts, I can see how this lady flipped out after stepping in dookie. When I worked for the local City Parks, it was a municipal code that it was a crime for people not to pick up their dogs poop after going in the park. Of course, this law was unenforcable – the cops were too busy, and the Parks administration had deemed it to risky for park workers to approach potentially crazy persons with vicious dogs. So, each morning when I worked in this one particular
park doggy toilet, I would see multiple residents of the fine old turn-of-the-century homes that surrounded the park, arriving in turns with Fido on a leash, to take his morning dump. And they never picked it up.
You can’t count on most people to do the right thing because it’s the right thing to do. And you can’t count on the boys in blue to mediate the situation. So who can you count on?
Answer: You can count on spike to leave nauseating pile of crap under the sycamore tree.
Here’s a possible strategy I though up for lashing back at people who leave their dog’s land mines on public or private property.
Meanwhile, read it and weep.
APERVILLE, Ill., Sept. 17 (UPI) — An Illinois woman was arrested for allegedly smearing dog droppings on a neighbor’s patio after stepping in it, authorities said.
Susan M. Miller, 43, of Naperville, Ill., was charged with disorderly conduct, the Chicago Tribune.
Naperville police say Miller also took a sign advising apartment residents to clean up after their dogs and placed it, along with green plastic bags used for cleaning up dog waste, on the same neighbor’s patio.
When police arrived at the apartment in answer to a complaint, they found Miller chasing a cat through the complex.
She yelled at the officers, asking if they “were there about the (neighbor) with dog poop,” the police report said.
Police arrested Miller — after she caught up with her roommate’s cat, the report said.
Miller was later released on bail.
