Our submitter spotted this twist on a well-worn trope in the Potrero Hill neighborhood of San Francisco.

Every time I see someone leave their dog’s poop behind, I want to force feed it to them.

We had a next-door neighbor that had a big sign on her front yard that read, “Curb your dog!!”
But then, every time she took her dog for a walk, she would make him poop in our yard.
My sister started returning her dog’s poop by leaving it on the neighbor’s front porch with signs saying, “Curb YOUR dog!!”

I always just pop my head out & yell “Hey buddy, you just gonna leave that there?!” in the “Eyy, I’m walkin’ heeeya” voice. Name & shame, y’all. Name & shame.

Who passed out the Haterade?
Interesting approach… but if the Poo Bandit is already inconsiderate enough to leave their dog’s feces for others to pick up, I’d put better odds on the dog having an attack of conscience than its owner.

I’ve read a lot about bad behaviour at dog parks by the owners.
Having a dog is nice, but it doesn’t make you charming or saintly.

You people and your complaints about dog pooh. Try dealing with horses that crap right at the front of your driveway! Big, steaming piles the size of small dogs!

Your piles may be bigger, but the smaller piles smell far, far worse.

Ever been near a pooper shooter? It’s like a giant Rain Bird that shoots manure instead of water.

Sounds like one of my kitties. Go in the box, sweetie, not over it.

I live in a very rural area, can’t relate to the whole ‘pickup your dogs poop’ thing…. But my dog EATS the horse poop!

Tolk to your vet, Tard. He can give you something that will make the poo taste bad.

My dog, Audrey, when she was young, used to eat cat poop from the cats that would wander into my backyard and use my veggie garden as a cat box. I broke her of the habit by washing her mouth out with Listerine every time I caught her doing it. In a week’s time, she stopped eating cat poop.
I miss that dog. She lived to the ripe age of 16 and even deaf, nearly completely blind, and suffering from dementia she still managed to greet me at the door 95% of the time.

The apartment complex I used to live in not only provided numerous trash bins for pet west, but the bags to pick it up with. People would still let their animals crap right next to the bin and not pick it up.
If you can’t be bothered to clean up after your animal when it craps in public and the supplies to do so are well within reach and free of charge, then you’re an asshat. Plain and simple.

Let’s play the “pretend you’re a Martian” game. The object of the game is to be an objective viewer of your own cultural habits. The person who is “it” pretends he is dropped from a spaceship into an American city. He is asked to describe something that is really weird. Wouldn’t the first thing he would report be a human being walking behind an animal picking up excrement and putting it into a bag?
If you don’t understand that game, then I’ll introduce you to the “pretend you’re an American reading a menu in a restaurant in Vietnam” game.
It would be interesting to know if pooping scooping is done in Europe. How widespread is this silliness? Uh-oh. Now I’ve done it.

It is done in Europe but we have the same problem.
Some people don’t pick up, others bag it and leave it !

Heh. Homer Simpson: “Dogs and cats are crapping in our houses and we are picking it up! Did we lose a war?”

Show the video to your police department. They should cite and fine that dog owner for leaving the mess behind.

I hate when people don’t bother picking up their dog shit in the winter time, they just kick a little snow on it as if that makes it just disappear. Then come spring you have this gross mess of melted liquid dog shit that’s kinda like freaking diarrhea. That splashes up your freaking leg if you make the mistake of stepping in or close to it. Don’t dare try to jump over a puddle to avoid getting your feet wet, there might be watery dog crap on the other side. If I knew who these people were I might just drown them in one of their dog shit puddles.

Husband: “I’M GONNA POST IT ON THE INTERWEBS. THEN EVERYBODY WILL SEE AND SOMEONE WILL FIND HIM AND MURDER HIM FOR ME!”
Wife: “Honey, no. You’re acting like a crazy person.”
Husband: “THIS DOG POOP IS TEARING OUR MARRIAGE APART!”
