toronto city dog poop

Someone is putting up poop flags in Toronto

If you're a dog owner, you probably go through hundreds of poop bags a year. Even though there are biodegradable options, the use of dollar store or plastic bags to pick up after your pooch is horrible for the environment.

Someone is taking a bold step in getting rid of this waste, and they're doing it through poop danger flags. You may have seen them on some downtown streets already, but don't be mistaken, they aren't meant to shame lazy dog owners. They're meant to warn people about poop purposefully left on the ground.

They've even gone as far as creating a web site where you can purchase the flags so you can put them up yourself.

The website instructs folks to "simply place a Jobby Flag beside your cainine's deposit, and once the droppings decompose, pick up the flag and reuse as needed!

Ironically the same site created a sign reminding all Mounted Police to "stoop and scoop" after their horses on the streets, and to keep the streets clean and smell free.
