A little over a year ago, we launched a Dog Shit Crusade to rid our streets of the putrid piles of poop that too-often dotted our sidewalks, asking readers to send in videos of the stinky scofflaws so we could publicly shame them into stopping.
Juvenile? Yes. But effective? Seems like it.
Here’s one more, and if you’re grossed out by the idea, don’t watch the video.
This dopey dog owner let his pooch go on the 1300 block of East Passyunk, about half a block south of Pat’s, on June 25. The friendly tipster who sent the video said he just saw the same crew walking along the avenue this week, so they’re still around.
The last time we posted a video of a rogue pooper, in June 2013, it was obviously a neighborhood guy you could call 3-1-1 on. That might not be so easy with this crew, but still, for the record, we don’t recommend that you confront this guy. Vigilante justice isn’t going to solve anything.
But it does seem like there’s been less poop on the ground this summer than last. Are we crazy, or do you agree?
Special thanks to the tipster who sent us this video. Have any other, nonpoop-related tips? Email us at email@example.com and we’ll check it out.
