What's so bad about poop? Isn't it good fertilizer?
Aside from the unpleasant odors, flies, and other pests (and the fact that it is actually illegal to not pick up your pet's waste).
The answer is disease! And parasites!
Our pets and native animals, like raccoons, are hosts to numerous species of intestinal worms and other harmful things. Pets can become infected through contact with infected feces, either through the mouth or through the skin.
It's not just your pets at risk, humans can become infected as well. Exposure can occur when people, especially children, come in contact with affected soil in the park, in your yard, or on the trail. It's up to us to clean it up.
Spread the word!
Scoop it. Bag it. Put it in the trash!
