Pick Up the Poo! It’s Bad for the Environment!
I can’t stand it when people don’t pick up after their dogs when they poop outside. Not only is it disgusting to see giant mounds of dog dung all over the place, it’s just about impossible to remove from the bottom of your shoe when you step in it…and that smell…
Here’s one more thing for those less-than-considerate dog owners to think about next time they contribute to a “poop n’ run:” Pet waste is actually bad for the environment.
Doggie poo contains disease-causing organisms such as E. coli and salmonella. Any running water–from a running hose or from the rain–carries the waste to storm drains. Once this water makes its appearance in local streams, it can lead to the death of fish and other aquatic life.
So PLEASE pick up the poo! If not for the sake of our shoes…do it for the fish!
