Caught in the act

May 23rd, 2011 · 89 comments

This bulletin board display from Louisville, Kentucky comes to us via Annie in Colorado, who adds: “I can’t help but feel sorry for the poor dogs caught popping a squat!” (Don’t worry, Annie. As you can see, I’ve taken steps to protect the identities of the canines pictured.)

Maybe it’s the classic crazypants handwriting, but I when I try to envision the creator of this display, the first image that comes to mind is one of those cop-show scenes where they bust in and find a room obsessively wallpapered with photos and maps and newspaper clippings documenting some big (or in this case, not so big) conspiracy theory.

But who knows? Maybe this guy is starting a new fetish mag and just wants to track down these dogs to pay their modeling fees or…something.

DO YOU KNOW THESE DOGS??? 8337 GT. HAS NO DOGS YET THESE DOGS ARE POOPING AROUND THIS ADDRESS. [Response:] GET A LIFE!!!

    I think I have made my position known before on this. Unleashed animals suck and so do their owners. Leave the poop on their doorstep and call animal control.

      Sort of hard to do when you don’t know who the owners are…hence the “Do you know these dogs?!”

      “If you care about these dogs, you’ll keep them out of my rifle’s range” might help bring the owners out.

      Not all unleashed dog owners fail to pick up poop. Of course when the dog is not in sight you’re going to end up with this.
      There are probably many “leashers” who also don’t pick up.

      I couldn’t agree more. I ran into three unleashed dogs while walking my dog yesterday. My walking route is along roads with pretty regular traffic. Last time I checked, dogs weren’t immune to cars. Even if you don’t care about the dogs, dog poop is a potential parasite danger for humans. I clean up after my dog. Yes, it is not fun to scoop dog leavings into a baggie and carry them along. I enjoy not being a complete douchenozzle, however, so I leash and pick up after my dog. Ugh.

      1) Scoop the poop and put it in a bag
      2) Bring a treat for the nice doggie
      3) While the doggie is happily accepting a treat, tie the bag to the dog’s collar/neck with a note for the owner

      I agree. Our neighbors have a dog, and I don’t know why. They let him run loose in the neighborhood unattended, running across our busy street and into other peoples’ yards. I’ve got a dog, but she does her business in our backyard. I’ve taken a shovel to their dog’s dookie and thrown it on their lawn. People need to be responsible pet caretakers.

    I’d be inclined to take an existential approach to this one, I think. Can anyone ever truly know a dog? Are we truly able to comprehend Fido’s identity in a manner that has even the slightest resemblance to his self-identity? If not, who are we to impose our concept of who he is upon him?

    …Or maybe 8337 Grouchy Tits should just shut up and put up a fence, if dogs doing their business on his lawn gets his knickers in such a twist.

      I totally disagree, FeRD. I think it’s ridiculous to say this person should have to put up a fence because others are so inconsiderate and let their dogs mess in his/her yard. It’s quite expensive to fence in a yard…not to mention a ton of work. Just pick up after your dogs, people…have a little respect.

    Flyer-Maker has it all wrong; The dogs are obviously trying to help him fertilize his half-dead lawn in these tough economic times. He should bring doggie biscuits with him next time instead of his camera. Team dogs! Or maybe his lawn is dying from all the dog urine. Oh well, I already made my choice.

      I bet you that this guy is secretly trying to make a profit off this. He takes copies of these pictures and sends them to all the bestiality porn sites that goes in that “special” category of dog porn. Can anyone say 2 dogs, 1 lawn? Also, it is quite possible that the dog poop is being used for his compost business on the side.

      In that case, maybe he wants to make sure no owners come forth so he can keep the dogs (and their poop) for himself and take all the pictures he wants at his leisure.

      Wouldn’t want to end up on the news or the internet as a convicted dog-napper…that would be embarrassing.

      I pick up 4 piles of different dog poop a day in my front yard.
      I open the front door in the morning to go out into my garden and catch the biggest whiff of dog piss, the same freaking dog pees there every morning, just before I get up, right on the cement on my front walk, about 2 feet from my door.
      I had to build raised planting beds (3 feet high) and cover them with wire to keep out dogs and cats. (don’t really want urine-flavored basil, thanks.)
      I had to buy gravel to put all along the one side of my house, because the neighbor’s cats were using it as a latrine. The smell would be so strong that it smelled as if a cat had just peed in my room. It would drive my old cat nuts, too.

      Can’t even tell you how many times I’ve walked to the mailbox and ended up with dog poo or piss on my feet.

      I clean up after my dog and don’t let my animals roam on others’ property.
      Call me crazy for expecting the same courtesy.

      Team notewriter all the way!

      Pony Girl, have you tried a natural deterrent? I found habenero vodka sprayed around the street lamp (where the dogs had gone) to be effective. Cut up a few habeneros, soak in vodka for a few weeks, put in spray bottle, apply as needed and after big rainstorms. Alternatively, make some martinis and forget about those damn dogs.

      It’s not the dog’s fault, but those lazy dog owners are another story. Drives me nuts too. Not so nuts that I’ve taken scat pictures of dogs though…..

      PG- Motion activated sprinklers. Best $30 I’ve ever spent. Yes, occasionally they wake me up at 3am but the fun of hearing the neighbor’s dumb cat freak out YET AGAIN always trumps the irritation. Not always effective on dogs (i.e. my water loving lab) but the surprise factor usually keeps them away. Trick #2- take them down for a week every month just to keep them guessing. BTW, if you aim one at the sidewalk, you can keep the nimrod dog owners away from your yard too. That one is the most entertaining!
      I can now safely plant in my front garden without worrying if I’m going to get a weird cat-poop infection.

      I don’t blame the animals, they’re just doing what comes naturally to them.
      I do blame the idiot owners; they are letting their animals run loose and putting their pets lives at risk from other animals, feral animals, wild animals, cars and crazy people.

      I don’t understand why people have pets if they’re not going to keep them safe.

      Choose life. Choose a job. Choose a career. Choose a family. Choose a fucking big television, Choose washing machines, cars, compact disc players, and electrical tin openers . . .

      Choose a three piece punctation suite on hire purchase in a range of fucking fabrics. Choose a red comma. Choose a cotton period. Choose a flowered semi-colon. Choose which way you want your note to be read. Choose capital letters after the period if you choose the period. Choose to repeat note like a baboon thumping dime-store saucepan lids together in tin-pan alley if you want me to take a memo, pristine in its exactitude. But still choose to insert a period. And the upper case knock-out. Come out swinging

      Choose life… But why would I want to do a thing like that?

    While the owners are idiots for letting their dogs loose all over town, the flyer maker is no more in the right than a dog shitting in the corner. Instead of wasting time going snap happy while these dogs are doing their business, the flyer maker should of either called Animal Control as soon as he/she sees the dogs enter the yard or find a way to catch the dogs and take them to a near by animal shelter until the ownership of the dogs are established. It’s the flyer makers yard, they do have control over what should or should not happen in their yard. They just fail to exercise that control properly, and the same thing goes for the owners failing to do their job watching and securing their dogs. These pictures are borderline disturbing and highly unnecessary as far as proving a point is concerned.

      So, I should risk bodily injury to catch someone’s dog?
      No. I don’t think so.
      If I try to catch the dogs doing this on my lawn, I will get bitten by at least one for sure, and don’t know if I’d survive that dog attacking me. The owner is worse, I am NOT approaching that maniac. Unfortunately, that is the only dog that I know who the owner is. The others live in the neighborhood obviously, and have collars, but I don’t know who owns them.
      Putting up photos may help if anyone were to see them and tell me who the owners are.
      I won’t however, because I don’t need scary-ass irresponsible dog-owners flinging poo at me (or worse.)

      But I very much relate to this person’s frustration and I applaud their kick-ass approach. (and their sense of humor if they were the one to put the black outs over the dog’s eyes.)

      When I say catch the dog yourself, I didn’t mean go charging at the dog like a crazed lunatic and start a wild goose chase the monent you see the dog shitting in your yard. Not only would that make the dog scared and possibly bite you, but it would also scare the dog shitless. With the right tools and materials,as well as caution and patience, you could easily set up a trap that is safe for both human and dog. I had the same issue with my neighbors and their refusal to keep their dogs from doing their buisness in everyone elses yards, mine included. Also the dogs had a habit of begging passerbys on the sidewalk for food because their idiot owners wouldn’t feed them. No matter how many times people complained and animal control was called. Nothing was done and the problem just continued to happen. Finally, enough was enough so myself and another fellow neighbor set up a kennel with food inside in his yard (cause it was the dogs favorite spot to shit) on a day when we knew the dogs were out and about doing their daily rounds. So we basically sat back in the bushes behind the kennel for about and half hour and finally the dogs showed up, dropped a load, and to their shock found the kennel with food inside and instantly went for it. Once the dogs were inside and preoccupied eating, we slowly sneaked over and shut the kennel door without freaking out the dogs. Afterwards we called Animal Control, explained to them what happened and demanded that they come get the dogs so they did. Long story short..The owners had the dogs taken away from them for good and the dogs are currently in a better home with a new owner who loves them, takes care of them, and keeps them in her yard. Our lawns have been shit free ever since.

      I also want to add that doing something like catching a wandering dog should only be done as a last resort and that it be done when you know you have help and that there is a safe way of doing it. If you know that the dog may attack you, then by all means don’t approach it and figure out another way to protect your yard. It’s honestly a better solution than shooting or poisoning the dogs. One should not have to surrender their yard to anyones dogs to use as a bathroom nor should you have to surrender to the dogs irresponsible, and lazy, owners because you’re afraid of retaliation..What’s the worst they can do? Tag team shit in your yard with their dogs? I don’t think this flyer does anyone, especially the flyer maker, any justice in their fight against dumb dog owners and their shit happy dogs.

      I don’t mean to be rude, or offend, but it’s not my job, not my responsibility.

      I have two dogs and a cat of my own. I am responsible for them. I keep them in my backyard and have them trained. I spent much time training them to the point that even if the fence is open and there are dogs and kids running around screaming and playing they will not leave the yard.
      I pick up after them in my yard and dispose of it properly. I pick up after them when I walk them twice a day and go on our 4x/weekly hikes.
      I brush my animals daily and vacuum daily to keep the house clean and non-stinky. I installed a cat door to the garage to keep the litter box in there so the house isn’t stinky. I clean that twice a day. I brush their teeth and trim their nails and clean their ears. I play with them a few times a day at least and I spend time with each of them just petting them and cuddling.
      I have a job and hobbies and friends.
      I don’t have time to train and care for other people’s pets.

      For the record, I grew up with dogs, dog breeders and dog trainers.
      I know how to handle dogs.
      I know enough to not risk my life because some dumbass doesn’t keep their dog in their yard, or at least out of mine.

      Calling animal control doesn’t help here. They don’t seem to respond to civilians calling them, they only time I see them is on the news when there’s a dog attack. Even if I were to catch these dogs, they’d just be returned to their owners and be back out in my yard again.

      it is, however, one of the reasons people should keep their pets on their property. there are whackos who hurt pets.

      Maybe that’s what happened here. The dog mafia knows that this guy abuses animals, so they are marking his yard for a hit.

      Our perceptions on the matter may differ in some ways, but I do not find your opinion to be rude or offensive. I truly applaud you for both your love and dedication to your pets, as well as the lengths you go to fulfill your responsibility as a good pet owner cause it’s a very tough job. It’s sad to see that there are some owners that lack that kind of love and ability to be a responsible pet owner. I see and respect your point that one shouldn’t have to be held responsible for the negligible choices made by pet owners cause when someone makes the choice to be a pet owner they are automatically responsible for the well-being of their pet. Unfortunately, nobody is really being held responsible for their poor choices in pet care like they should be and yet they are still allowed to continue being a careless pet owner. Just like CPS would take children out an abusive, neglectful, home only to return the kids to their horrible parents again. Animal Control also does the same thing to abused and neglected pets. CPS and Animal Control are nothing but a disgrace. Innocent children and pets deserve way better than what those two departments have to offer, which isn’t very much. I never said you that you have to take care of other peoples pets, all I was saying that when it comes down to the security of ones own yard, one would naturally do whatever it takes to keep it that way is all and by no means am I implying that you don’t keep your yard secure cause I’m quite positive that you do.

      As a part-time employee at the local Animal Shelter, I am responsible for taking care of other peoples pets until I can manage to find them a good, loving home. I too know how to handle any type of dog and I would never suggest anything to anyone if I knew that whatever advice I’d give didn’t work or that someone might get hurt. I see to it that myself, my co-workers and animals are safe when handling is in progress. I see first hand everyday the abuse and neglect inflicted upon many animals that come into the shelter by owners who do not even care about them, and especially by no so kind homeowners that catch those animals wandering onto their property. I take pride in knowing that I can give an animal both the love and the opportunity to start a new and better life with a new owner when they couldn’t get that anywhere else, and I know that you get the same feeling when caring for your pets and how well you’ve trained them. Just because we are technically to some degree not responsible for other peoples pets, that doesn’t mean we don’t have a right to step in when the time and situation calls for it. Like I said, we see it differently but we are on the same page on one thing. Irresponsible pet owners ruin everyone’s day and yards.

      At first I was confused about PG’s second comment and then I realized that my comment about safety catching an animal being a better solution than shooting or poisoning an animal may have came out horribly wrong. By no means is shooting or poisoning an animal ever a good solution, and I’m with PG that it’s never a solution. Just so we’re all clear I don’t think killing an animal for simply shitting in your yard is a good reason at all.

      Sorry, I didn’t think that you were advocating shooting etc., I just wanted to be clear that I don’t advocate it. Sometimes people think that my being upset with the pet owners means that I am upset with the pet.

      I think that’s really sh*tty to call animal control on these animals. Is it worth these animals being put down over? No.
      I had a neighbor that was complaining that my CAT did business in their bushes. They called animal control, pointed the finger at me, and I was told to keep my cat on a leash. They kept finding poop underneath their bushes, so animal control put a trap out and they caught a cat – not mine! When animal control took the cat to the shelter, they put it to sleep the same evening, as they said the cat was agressive. I would think being agressive while trapped in a cage is a normal feline behavior. My relations with the neighbor never improved, and a cat was dead as the result.
      Putting up the poster is a much better way of dealing with this.

      Or you could keep your animals in your yard and your house only and keep them from trespassing on other’s property. Damn right I call animal control when an animal repeatedly causes problems in my yard. I have small children who play in the yard and it not only gross but hazardous to their health to come in contact with fecal matter all the time.

      I also call AC when a dog or cat acts aggressive towards us. It is my right to protect my family against injury. Since I have been attacked numerous times by off leash dogs I take it very seriously.

      How hard is it to keep your pets on your own property? My best friends and next door neighbors have three cats and a dog and not once have the pets ever stepped a foot on my property. It is doable. If you can’t handle keeping your animals on your property than get rid of them or move out into the middle of nowhere.

      Calling animal control does not necessarily result in the dog/cat being put down. Depends on where you are. Our local one isn’t so bad.

      Not all AC are bad, sadly you just happen to hear or experience some of the of the ones that are poorly managed and ethically questionable. Now unless the animal has an extensive history ( and what I mean by extensive I mean absolute PROOF) of aggresson to the point to where rehabilitation does not work to fix the animals aggression than by regulation for human safety the animal the has to be put down. I don’t agree with putting an animal down without a justified reason (like terminal illness or above mentioned inability to mentally rehabilitate ), and what’s horrible is a lot of places will just put down an animal just so they wouldn’t have to deal with a troubled animal or because of fear going over capacity..That to me is not good a enough reason. If you go about putting an animal in cage like a brute, than yes the animal will react defensively to their being handled roughly. But if you go about it patiently and calmly many would surprised that caging the animal wil bel a little bit easier cause the animal is less likely to run off or act out aggressively. It doesn’t work all the time but it’s proven to be way more effectove then just hog tieing the animal.

      Haha it’s okay PG, I was just making sure we were on the same page was all : ) And overall this has been a really good discussion!

      Side note: Also, I want to apologize to everyone for the errors that have been recently popping up in my posts. I don’t have a computer so for now I have to use my phone to access my online stuff until my computer is fixed. It’s been a little hard being able to see what I’m typing so it will be like this a little bit until I become accustomed to making posts with my phone. Again I am sorry.

      What people do with their own time is their own business; wasting it or not. What is important to others is often unimportant to us. If the photographer is shitting bricks over the bricks of shit, shooting shitters and posting pooper pictures is tame compared to actually shooting the dogs.

      The “Get A Life” note falls under the same category of “wasting your own time.”

      I don’t see why. Unlike humans, dog don’t care if everyone knows it was them that left a steamy turd on the neighbors porch and had the pictures to prove it. Dogs in general have no shame! Think about it, if someone took a picture of you shitting in their vegetable garden and managed to catch you on camera. You would damn well wish for your face to be blacked over to protect both your identity and your pride. Or to help keep the police from charging you with urination in public and public indecency.

      Yes, dogs are poop proud. If they could speak, they’d not only poop in public but tell you all about how huge or stinky it was. I suspect this is why they have become “man’s best friend”. They are like the man who, after farting in the car, locks out control to all the windows so the all can appreciate the aroma.

      Cats have more poop shame. They go in corners and hidden spots, away from prying eyes, and bury it afterwards. In that way they are like the woman who flushes as she poops so that the other ladies in the bathroom neither hears nor smells it.

      A half-dozen skunks on the property should do the trick. When those dogs get home, their owners may rethink the wisdom of letting them run loose.

    Pretty sure the one on the top left is peeing. As a dog owner who picks up after her dogs 90% of the time, I know a squat from a crouch – and have in fact had people yell at me to pick up after my dog when they’re peeing, which makes me yell back asking exactly who they propose I do it – I’m not quite anal enough to carry a watering can around with me and rinse it away.

      You could not let your dogs pee on other’s lawns so that it kills their grass. Just a thought. Let you dog pee in YOUR yard.

      Maybe nnaylime lives in an apartment and doesn’t have a yard, hmm?

      I live in an apartment. I don’t really have a yard. There’s some grass in the front so whenever we go out I try to get my dog to pee there, but I can’t exactly FORCE him to urinate. I walk him daily and yeah, he pees on other people’s lawns. I try to encourage him to do it on tree trunks or shrubs instead of grass whenever possible, and I never let him do it on edible plants, but still. I totally get where nnaylime is coming from. No one has ever said anything to me but I’ve gotten more than one nasty look. At the same time I get where the homeowners are coming from too but come on…I pick up after his poop 100% of the time and try to make sure he doesn’t urinate on grass but cut me some slack here and stop glaring.

      well I don’t give a crap about dead grass, I have crab grass. So I personally would not care. But you know how some people buy that fancy expensive grass and take super big pride in their lawns. They would probably care. I guess at least try to keep them from peeing on those types of lawns.

    I’m kind of on team notewriter on this one. Yes, it’s written in crazytalk and with poor handwriting but NW has a point. Dog poop is not only gross but highly unsanitary. It can even pose a parasite risk to humans.
    To those of you saying that NW should catch the dogs and call animal control, that’s really not a good idea. Approaching a strange dog should be done with caution, if ever and it is a good way to get a nasty dog bite followed by a big rabies shot in the stomach. Not fun.

    As a mother with a toddler and no fence, 90% of the reason I don’t let my son play in the front yard is because I have neighbors that let their dogs out to crap. They come crap and piss in my yard, then go back home. I then either have to clean it up or risk my kid playing in it. I’ve actually run people off from walking their dog to my PORCH to pee on the deck because “Spot likes your tomato planter.”

    It’s gotten so bad, I had to threaten one neighbor with animal control the next time I saw him without a leash. We’ll be fencing in the back yard soon, and if I see a single dog back there crapping, I’ll be taking them to the pound.
