P.P.P* Pick up your pet’s poop.

Have you ever been strolling along on a nice, sunny spring day, only to be halted in your tracks when your eye catches a neatly tied, full poop bag? Perhaps right in front of you on the sidewalk, on the boulevard or thrown carelessly against a lamp post or under a hedge. How disgusting is this? And you think, who would go to all the trouble of carrying a poop bag, do the responsible thing of scooping up and then NOT disposing it correctly in a sanitary way? Who indeed?
There is also another problem on the rise – the winter counterpart of this. That is the person who believes that by leaving the poop on the snow, it will melt away in the spring. However, the result of this rather inconsiderate behaviour can be quite alarming. Although the actual poop may eventually disappear, the eggs contained within the fecal matter, never do! The problem here is that when he eggs from the parasites within the fecal matter become infected they constitute a serious health hazard. Specific larvae can hatch, easily get passed on to people, particularly children who tend to play in these areas. The children then pick up these organisms which can travel through their organisms leading to a banquet of of health problems.
This is why many municipalities are passing ordinances designed to reduce this kind of reckless activity Should this be necessary? Do we only do the right thing in fear of “bad” consequences?
Surely, all that is needed is a bit of forethought and consideration. Then all this can be avoided.
