This just in from Facebook:
Poop Police: Witnessed a woman who lives in the Tides watch her dog take a giant dump NEXT TO A TRASHCAN, and not pick it up this morning around 8:30am. She has two dogs, one is a white pom-shiba looking thing, and the other is a black cattle dog with white spots. If any of you see her outside and witness her not pick up after her dogs again, please say something. I saw her as I was getting into an uber this morning so I wasn’t able to say anything. I certainly will when I see her next.
We all have to work together to keep the park clean, people like this woman are the reason that we have to fight so hard to get access to maggie daly park and other areas of the city because unfortunately she makes it a valid argument that dog owners don’t clean up after their pets.
From the town of Montereau, FR!
New efforts to punish pooch owners!
It costs the town $268,000 annually to clean up!
CCTV fines up to $47!
Paris was named the dog mess capital of the world!

Last Friday, 20 lawn signs went up reminding people to keep dogs and their waste away from the grassy areas at Mary Bartelme Park. By Saturday morning, someone had removed the signs and thrown them in nearby garbage cans. DNAinfo reported the matter Saturday afternoon.
Shortly after the DNAinfo article was posted, Nat Stewart tweeted to NoWL and DNAinfo’s Stephanie Lulay that he had pulled five of the signs out of the trash and reposted two of them. Around the same time, Twitter user WestLooper said rule-breaking dog owners could expect to see their photos posted publicly on the social media site. [No pictures, yet!]
WestLooper’s comment made the headline in DNAinfo’s next piece, but the real story was dog owners proposing a compromise that would allow leashed canines on one of the park’s grassy areas.

Please be patient while we work out the hiccups.
