Why can't people pick up their dogs poop?

Why on earth do people get pets if they can't or refuse to take care of them?

I live in the country, wide open lands. Thousands and thousands of acres of land. Yet people still manage to walk their dog and leave
a big ugly surprise by my mailbox. I'm not alone, I've had other neighbors complain of the same thing. Yes I get it, dogs like mailboxes.
OK, pick it up.

I have a small dog, her droppings are smaller than a cigarette, I still pick up her poop every single time. I would never leave that for a neighbor.
I don't care if you let your dog crap all over your own yard, have a poop party. I just don't want it in my yard.

I think people that are caught more than once not picking up their dogs mess should have that dog taken away. Sound drastic?
Just imagine, if they are not willing to do the very basics, my guess is that animal is lacking in many other areas too.
I never ever blame the animal, only the human. It's so stupid that towns have to have laws about this. Why can't people either just
pick up the poop or..............not have a dog!

I would say the vast majority of owners are really responsible, dog loving people, but there is always that one a$$hat, always one!
Seriously, every single place I've ever lived, small townhouse, apartment, big house, little house, country, city, there is always that one person that
should not be allowed to be a pet owner.

sorry rant over...........

What's worse is people who pick up the poop in a plastic bag and LEAVE THE BAG! Idiots! At least if the poop is left in the open it will deteriorate and disappear. But poop in a plastic bag is basically forever.

Twenty years ago I was in the center of town and my dog pooped right in front of the steps to a church. I forgot to put pickup bags in my pocket before we left the house. There was probably a wedding going on. I didn't know what to do. I went to the nearest trash can and dug out something to pick-up the crap. The guy who was with me could not believe what he was watching. I explained I did not want to go to Hell!

I'm pretty sure the bags I get are biodegradable

I'd actually prefer they bag it and leave it rather than an open pile of disease.

One place I lived had so many people that refused to pick up the poop that other dogs were getting worms.
They eventually had to get cameras and the HOA really started cracking down on people.

I'm absolutely like that. Again I live in the country, there was a time I walked my dog and she pooped near a field, but it was across the street from someones house. My little bag carrier ran out. Truly an area that wouldn't have made a difference. I still walked home got a bag and went back and picked it up.

My kids were out gallivanting around the neighborhood on their bikes with their friend the other day. Two out of the three managed to nail a big pile that was semi-camouflaged on the sidewalk (someone's overgrown yard was spreading outward) They got back here and bitched up a storm -- nobody wants to wash bike tires & spokes and stuff off outside when the hose water's cold as ice (it's not going to get warm again til next year) Also, it stunk. Whatever the (presumably a) dog was fed, it reeked coming out the ass-end.

Rude people are rude. There's not much we can do about them. Taking animals away doesn't seem to do anything, but maybe naming & shaming the crap (no pun intended) out of them would do something. Nobody wants their public reputation tarnished, people seem to buck up to preserve that.

Yeah, I really love walking down the street and seeing bags of poop on the side.

What I'd love most is if they would bag it/scoop it/shovel it, whatever they want to do, but at least take it with them.

Not sure where you live but I've rarely seen people that bag and just leave it, but that might be a suburban thing.

Any given day I can show you at least three places where a bag is lying, often in plain sight. Sometimes they try to get clever and "hide" it behind a bush. I don't know where I live. I guess it is suburban like, but it identifies as an island.

Dear ATS Readers, Writers,

Luckily, I have a decent sized back garden for my 2 fur babies.

I totally agree that people "should" clean up after their dogs that do their pooping in "public".
I mean, any place NOT in their own garden.

You mentioned taking dogs away from owners if they did not clean up after them....after a couple of offences.

Yes, I think this is drastic.

Where would these confiscated dogs go? To the dog pound? Up for adoption? With a time limit on their days left alive if not adopted?

Sorry, but what at first "seems" like an act of "kindness" or well meant intent on concerns for the animals; later once implemented actually make a slow, jailed, isolated wait for death by vacuum chamber usually for un adopted dogs and cats.

If the animal is well cared for, has a home... good vet care, etc..; but the owner doesn't clean up, then fines are in order, in my opinion. No need to confiscate the dog..

You mention dogs only basically...

Cats are famous for this same disgusting habit. One place they will poop almost without fail is if you have a sandbox for your kids to play in. Or a nice veggie garden.... No one on earth follows a cat around, usually at night... to clean up their poop. Ha!

Cats are terrible killers of birds, lizards, frogs, etc... even if fed well at home. Cats, in my opinion should NEVER be allowed to roam outside.

Being in Australia, and seeing the terrible feral cat plague we have, and its harm to our lovely fauna...I am probably biased in what many might see as extreme..Ha!

Seeing as there are HUGE numbers of feral cats in Australia... A ban on not letting your pet cat roam at night or anytime really, is a little late.

The cat is already out of the bag, so to speak, in Oz.

Back on topic, I support your rant on dog poo not getting picked up... but am against confiscation of the animals from the owners..based on that offence alone. I support fines, and perhaps even increasing amounts if a serial repeat offender.

I live in an apartment. There are rolls of doggie bags and special trash cans for them EVERYWHERE in the complex. Add to that the fact that the complex backs up to a large patch of woods with clear trails throughout where doggies can go without anyone having to pick up their business. But noooooooo..... everyone lets their dogs poop in the parking medians and don't pick up- even with doggie bags and disposal cans just a couple of feet away. Some people even leave dog poop in the middle of the sidewalks when there are grassy areas throughout the complex!

If I can pick up after my pitbull you can pick up after your damned house rats you lazy bums!

I live in the country. I have over 5 acres of land and because I enjoy walking about freely day and night on my property, I pick up the poo from my five Huskies as they go. This only works most of the time, and only as long as I stick close to the house.

While it helps knowing my property is free of my dog's poo, I still have to be cautious, because my neighbor's horses, donkeys, cows, goats, and the wild critters, they don't care were they go, and they all seem to love my pond. It is s pure beastie magnet.

To be honest I don't notice much dog poo from other's dogs around, but that is probably because it is dwarfed by the cow and horse poo we find along our dirt roads.

I welcome feral cats to my yard because they kill ground squirrels and mice. I have not seen them use the bathroom in my yard. So if they are doing it, they are hiding it.

Ok, maybe it is too drastic. What if there is concrete proof of offenses, more than the first time (like video)
Then the offender has to work doing community service, cleaning up poop at an animal shelter! Wouldn't that fit the crime?

Dear ATS Readers, Writers,

Hi JAGStorm...

Yeah you don't see cat poo, because they almost always cover it up....

Which is why the kids in the sandbox will sometimes scoop up a "strangle lump" with their little shovels...then start throwing those lumps at their siblings, etc..Ha!

Their are videos of the feral cats in Oz killing wallabies even... not to mention a dozen or more other endangered marsupials...

In some areas, wild feral dogs are also a problem.

Wild pigs are another plague... and of course the BIG Oz mistake, cane toads.... Argghhh.

We got tons of snakes for the mice though..Ha! Even mice get plague like sometimes here too.

Dear ATS Readers, Writers,

Hello again JAGStorm,

There you go..... now that is more along the lines of being reasonable... the community service thing would hit home more I think.

Most folks are in such a hurry these days, (hence your valid rant); that having to allocate many hours to community service would strike home better.

What a crappy thread.

I don't own a dog anymore but if I did, I would not be taking it for walks and letting it crap on other people's property without picking it up. I wouldn't let the dog poop by someone's mailbox if I was walking a dog. It isn't that hard to pull the dog away from the mailbox so it would poop on the shoulder grass.

Even better are the mis-fires that end up, up a tree !
That will hang all winter, gaily announcing its presence as the biodegradable bag...doesnt!
My bitch (sic) is those who buy huge dogs, with the inevitable massive pile they leave. Where did the think the cr@p was going to go. Or mayabe the does a Korean super being and just ingests it! LOL

Oh abd my JRT does his, twice a day and gets dealt with right away.
