LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Trash your poo, please

So, what is the story with leaving plastic bags of dog poo, in parking lots, foot paths, hiking trails, and county roads? This morning, while walking Meyers Grade I counted, five, count’ em five, brightly-colored bags of poo, tucked under rocks, like some treasure waiting to be discovered. No, they were not going to be claimed by the pet owner on their return trip down the hill. I was the only one walking at 6:45 a.m., and there were no cars parked at the gate. Poo baggers, quit pretending you are protecting the quality of the water by bagging and then leaving the poo behind. There is no poo fairy who will collect it. That’s your job, and if you don’t want to carry it out, at least leave it unbagged so it will eventually degrade, or leave your dog at home.
