The reason why parks want people to pick up their dog poop isn't only because it's gross to step in, it's the runoff into the streams and ponds or lakes parks have. Poop from 100 dogs over a 3 day period can effectively close the water for swimming or fishing.

The EPA has even listed dog poop as a dangerous pollutant, even in the same category as hazardous chemicals and oil.
I know how bad it is for kids and the environment and ALL the diseases that come with the crap. I was just wondering if Snyder thought it was ok....

When I give a bid and a big dog is barking when I ring door bell I don't even call them back if they not home. If they at home I inflate the bid by $15, they always say " I will talk to wife/husband and get back to you". I never hear back from them and that is good. I believe some people pay to have yard mowed just so they don't have to pick up dog poop.

I didn't say it was a natural fert its a fertilizer that does makes grass grow
tall Fescue can handle it but KBG and Rye Cant take it burns it.

But Dog pee is very hard on things.
Cat poo is harder on the grass then Dog poo.

Now when you really want to see the poop fly, hit a pile from a horse.

I once mowed a lawn that had mastiffs on it. Basically was horse manure volume wise. Disgusting.

Yes your right, my mistake. You didn't say it was a natural fertilizer, but might as well have. Its not good for the grass, it doesn't make it grow, and its not fertilizer...I have a tall fescue lawn at my personal house and live on a corner, and get a lot of dog owners that don't like to pick up after there mutts and it kills the grass along with female dog pee.
