Why pick up dog crap then leave it in a bag
I asked a dog walker about this – its to make it easier for the council to clear up apparently. 🙄 Round my way on the main dog walker paths someone ( the council chap?) has now started hanging bin liners in a couple of places – presumably to put the crap bags inPosted 6 years agosnowpaulMember
I get super wound up by this – I own 2 dogs and the mrs has one too – we go mad when we see these turd bags in the woods – it gives us a bad name when walking our dogs…its kinda like red light jumping cyclists giving normal cyclists a bad name….
i have yet to see someone doing this for real though… could be an interesting chat…Posted 6 years agocolournoiseSubscriber
Confuses and irritates the **** out of me. We have two dogs and always (unless asked otherwise – a local FC wood specifically asks dog owners to ‘flick’ the shits off the path and into the undergrowth with a stick as providing and maintaining shit bins is too costly) bag and bin (or take away to bin elsewhere) the excrement.

Probably it’s to prevent the spread of toxoplasmosis or any other nastiness. What would you prefer? Fresh unprotected dog poop squelching between your toes or something wrapped in a plastic bag.The lazy feckers are going to leave it so leaving it in a plastic bag is showing a high level of regard for the public by protecting them from the nasty, nasty poop.Posted 6 years agogravitysucksMember
Was in a local park once when I saw someone do this. Was about to go and have a word when some randomer walks past me picks the said poo out of the tree, wrips the top of the bag and then proceeds to smear it over the dog walkers back and then gives him a mouthful.
I was still tittering when the bloke walked past me and had a brief chat. Apparantly the culprit was a regular renowned for doing it and this bloke (another dog walker) had enough one day when he saw about 12 bags hanging from the same tree.Posted 6 years ago
“It was the last straw, I vowed the next time I saw him he was taking it home with him one way or other”!

Not one, not two bags, but three bags of dog dodo on my canal commute home last night!
All left in the middle of the path in neatly placed bags!
We also have a amazing looking 200+ year old Oak tree, on the edge of a local park here, which from a distance looks like its been decorated with the darn things!
The only reason I can think of is that the owners dont want to carry the things about with them & place them in the tree so when they return can dispose of them then, but for whatever reason they don’t.Posted 6 years agorichcMember
I have been known to stash a bag to get it on the way back, typically when I know the walk doesn’t have any shit bins on it and my dog has crapped in an area I know kids play in and I can’t be bother to try and flick/dribble the shit 50 meters or so to the woods. Not that it should bother bikers as its mostly on or around footpaths …………Posted 6 years ago
i can steer round the doggy doo it the horse shine that has to be ridden through
Other way round for me. Horse poo is big, and always in the middle of the trail so you can see it. Dog poo is small and often hidden behind a clump of grass or under some leaves or something.Posted 6 years agoMSPSubscriber

Has anyone actually investigated the disappearance of all these dog walkers, you could have a serial killer operating in your area, the evidence is there for all to see.Posted 6 years ago
no plastic bag is biodegradable – all that happens with the so called biodegradable ones is that they disintegrate into small pieces of plastic bag.
Just had a quick search and you’re right.
Dog poo bags should be made out of paper…a plus side is that the walkers will have to walk faster to get to a bin before it soaks through.Posted 6 years ago
