Stanton Street Dog Dumping Grounds

Posted on: April 27th, 2012 at 6:19 am by

Stanton Street residents, particularly those living near the corner of Chrystie, are incensed by the increasing amount of dog shit in the immediate vicinity. Like any other shit-foot fearing neighbor, a letter was written to the inconsiderate offenders and posted on a nearby light pole. So, without further ado, it’s time to wheel out the latest urban etiquette sign.

Rather than squint, the copy is pasted below:

TO ALL DOG OWNERS:

Stanton Street has become the dumping ground for all disgraceful dog owners. PICK UP THE POOP.

We love your dog, but you need to be responsible in making sure that your dog poop is not the responsibility of the community or that we walk away with yo “shit.”

Please walk with a bag or paper and do the right thing for your neighbor, community, and people who live in the building that you allow your dog to poop in front of.

We’re all responsible adults/dog owners follow the law clean up after your pet –OR– LET YOUR DOG POOP/SHIT IN FRONT OF YOUR BUILDING.

    I think people who don’t pick up their dog shit should have their pictures posted on the Web.  This is totally disgusting and gives good dog owners a bad name.  These people are incosiderate pigs.
