scampering from the arm of the law

#southlooppoop

A rare picture sent to us by a correspondent captures poo scofflaws scampering from police in Cottontail park:

Probably the best picture of the Father, the Dog and the Child, it is a medium sized golden colored dog.  This pic even shows the two Police starting to walk through the park, they are right before the drinking fountain [at the top left].  After being talked to by the Police, which was likely ‘Hey, leash your dog!’, the Police even pointed to the dog, the adult leashed the dog, and the party walked off to the exit at Federal [on the northwest side of the park].  That gives us an idea where they live, i.e. Dearborn Park II, if they lived on State, they would have used the Plymouth exit…

That looks like a big dog.  That means they left us with a big poo.

It also means that the cops had an opportunity to earn a fat $500 check for the city. Too bad they missed that, huh?

And that poor kid, being brought up in a life of crime.

Such a shame.

Sledding Kids Covered in Poop

The poo controversy builds at Bartelme Park:  Sledding Kids Covered With Dog Poop in West Loop, Neighbors Angry

This is particularly interesting because this park has a so called ‘Dog Friendly Area‘ that has, obviously, been rejected by a significant number of dog owners in the area.  Despite similar and substantial off-hours off-leash dog use at other Chicago parks, it’s rare to see this much poo controversy.

If you read the article, there seem to be a lot of comments that exhibit a patronizing disrespect for dog owners – who largely, just want to exercise their dogs.

Perhaps it’s worth considering – has the 4000 sq ft ‘DFA’ actually engendered mutual contempt? Seems more like a prison than a dog park to us:

Catchy!

Rockford District Council asks ‘Can We Make ‘Poo’ Go Viral?’ Yes, yes, we can!

We’ll be working on transcribing the lyrics so we can all sing along!

The slow decay of winter poo

Everybody’s talking about it.

It’s been a bad winter in Chicago, and that means that as the snow melts several month’s worth of poo emerges.

You see the trash, broken bottles, cigarette butts, too…

But it’s the poo that gets the attention.

Fools at the Streeterville park leave dog shit in the tennis courts and get shut down!

Idiots at Coliseum Park leave dog shit all over the park…

But think about it.

It’s pretty straightforward to do the numbers.

All it takes is one dog owner leaving his dog’s poo behind every day for 60 days to mean that on some lovely March morning  in the melting snow pack there are 60 shits to gaze upon.

There are hundreds of dog owners around. 

It only takes the 1%.
