‘Return to Sender’ is how Spain Deals With Dog Poop!

The Spanish town of Brunete (near Madrid) has found a most amusing way to keep its streets clean of dog droppings– by sending offending deposits back to the owners in a box marked “Lost Property.” The city council launched the campaign to crack down on irresponsible dog owners.

 

During the course of a week a team of 20 volunteers patrolled the town’s streets on the lookout for dog owners who failed to scoop. They then approached the guilty owner and struck up a casual conversation to discover 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. The volunteers then scooped up the poop, packaged it in a box branded with the town hall’s insignia – marked “Lost Property” and delivered it by courier to the pet owner.

 

A total of 147 deliveries were made during the course of the week-long scheme and the town has since reported a 70% drop in dog poop on the streets. (Ananova)
