This one is a disgusting bit of business, but it needs to be addressed, as it is becoming a curb hazard, with frustrations of dog leavings on the rise.

On our sidewalks, inside our parks, at curbs and in plain sight, dog poo is being left in increasing amounts, lying in wait for an unlucky individual to step on.

Most folks we have spoken with say they're tired of this crap. They report finding these droppings on our streets and being forced to step around this nasty stuff. Most agree - If you cant pick up after your own pet, then you should not have a pet.
