A recent poll asked Montlakers what dog walkers should do with their bags of dog poop and the results have now been tallied and certified:
60% say it’s best to carry it all the way home.
27% endorse dropping it in the nearest garbage can left out on the curb.
11% think it’s fine to walk onto someone else’s property to drop it in their garbage can.
2% voted to toss it in a neighbor’s yard.
So there you have it: Carry It Home wins by a mile. Or did it? Some 40% voted it OK to pass the poop to someone else’s property, in one way or another. What does it say that individual versus collective responsibility splits 60-40 on this issue?
