POOP PATROL

I think the city I live in is missing a sure bet. I am disgusted by people pigs!

For instance: Clover Creek Preserve. It’s a fairly new place in my town to walk the dog, run, or ride bikes. A sanctuary for birds and people. At the fence to enter there are ALWAYS bags available to take with you so you can scoop up any mess your dog may leave.

A week ago I walked the preserve. I was amazed and disgusted that I counted over 60 piles of poop right next to the pathways. I didn’t start out to do that, but I was curious to see how many pigs walk their dogs.

Today I chose to go back for a bike ride. By the way, I have a dog and I clean up after him. That’s part of my responsibility as a dog owner and good citizen of Redding.

I was again stunned by the piles of poop left behind. Now this preserve isn’t in a bad part of town. Most of the usage is by folks who live within walking distance, though I am not blaming them totally. I see usually five or six cars parked in the parking lot. I am sure the river trail and other walkways suffer the same problem, and not just in my town!

This morning the poop was left right in the middle of the dirt pathway and the asphalt path as well. Big piles of poop.

So here is my idea. Why can’t the city hire a few people to go on poop patrol? (Maybe they could even find volunteers). They could ride a bike, wear a hat stating who they are, or perhaps sit on one of the benches with compact binoculars.

When they spot a pig letting their dog go poop, and don’t pick it up, they are given a ticket and a fine. Littering is a huge fine. Why not leaving fecal matter disgracefully on sidewalks and pathways provided for resident’s enjoyment.

Four piles of poop, say $250.00 per pile and within minutes the city earns $1,000.00. With just what I counted within a week, if people were ticketed for being pigs, the city could take in $16,000.00! Any problem with that?

This is also written for those pigs who let their children take a poop in ourl local lakes, and leave dirty diapers on the ground! They should have to pay a fine and get a swift kick in the butt too.

It probably won’t happen, but just to reiterate: I THINK PEOPLE WHO ARE PIGS SHOULDN’T WALK THEIR DOGS ON PUBLIC WALKWAYS. STAY HOME AND LET THE POOP COLLECT FLIES AND NASTY VARMINTS IN YOUR OWN SPACE.

How would you like it if just 64 of those who follow the rules brought their dogs to your house and used it for a poop depository?

GROW UP PEOPLE AND TAKE A BIT OF RESPONSIBILITY. We all live in this world and have to share the space!
