Got a good reason For taking the easy way out

At long last, a new Thursday Trash Talk.....

I haven't done a Thursday Trash Talk in ages!! Actually, really haven't found time to go searching for some topic in the news that was worthy of trashy talk. After finding this one tho, I couldn't resist sharing. Hey, I could even understand having some flying insect spray on hand, in the storage area, at the Town Hall's Office, for their couriers, now, wouldn't you?
"No Butts About It!!"

Read on....

Dog parks are an oasis for millions of pet owners—pups can run around, interact with other dogs and get a taste of nature without having to head out of town on weekends. Some careless dog owners, however, don't abide by dog park rules, or simple common decency, and leave their dogs' waste behind for others to clean up. Well, a small town in Spain, reports the Telegraph, has decided to remedy the situation by mailing the discarded dog excrement back to the offending owners. The paper reports that the town council of Brunete, located about 20 miles from Madrid, has undertaken a complex effort to crack down on the disrespectful dog owners. Twenty volunteers have been enlisted to approach dog owners who leave their pet’s poop behind, and to strike up a conversation with the goal of finding out the name of the dog. "With the name of the dog and the breed it was possible to identify the owner from the registered pet database held in the town hall," a spokesman from the council told the Telegraph. Once the owner’s address was confirmed, the dog poop is scooped up, placed in a box containing the town hall’s insignia and delivered via courier to the owner’s home. And to top it all off, the box is labeled, “Lost Property.” read more of the article here, or move on to ----

Masterius posted: I guess the volunteers who sneakily find out the dogs' names are stool pigeons.

American Pride posted: At least they are trying something to hold these careless dog owners accountable. I can only imagine the first words that are said when a box is opened. Maybe like "Oh #$%$"!
