An interesting headline from Upper Providence Township, PA:
The subhead? Closing of dog park causes big stink.
The interesting part is this claim:
Officials said that there was so much poop in the park that lawn mowers contracted by the township refused to go in after it clogged their machines and sprayed excrement up the drivers’ backs.
… it clogged their machines and sprayed excrement up the drivers’ backs !!!
But there’s enough information in the (short) article to get some sense of the failure of policy – not enough trash containers at Reynolds Dog Park, and those that were available weren’t emptied frequently.
Still, you gotta wonder what people were doing to cause poo to ‘clog up the machines‘!
The park has a Facebook page. Check it out.
