Many local folks have mentioned they are appalled at the lack of care dog owners have when cleaning up after their pooch. The deposits should be picked up and bagged and the bags put in the garbage. We all enjoy a stroll in paradise but when the lack of care by dog owners is a highly visible, smelly obstruction in or out of the bag it is just not fitting.
