This happened here in town. I thought it was funny until I read the last sentence. I'll see if I can find out what's going to happen with the dog...<br><br><br><br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>
<div class="quote-block">Failure to scoop the poop landed a Bloomington woman in the coop Thursday morning.<br><br>
Police said the 23-year-old woman was being issued an ordinance-violation ticket about 10:40 a.m. in downtown Bloomington because she hadn't cleaned up after her small dog at Monroe and Center streets.<br><br><br><br>
The woman walked away from the city police officer and refused to return, which netted her a misdemeanor obstructing police charge, a police report said.<br><br><br><br>
While in custody the woman kicked and shoved the arresting officer, which resulted in her being booked into jail on a preliminary charge of aggravated battery -- a felony, police said.<br><br><br><br>
The woman remained in McLean County jail pending formal charging and a court appearance this afternoon, according to jail records.<br><br><br><br>
McLean County Animal Control took the dog.<br></div>

Way to make a not-so-bad situation worse. Egads.<br><br><br><br>
Btw--don't all responsible dog owners have a stash of plastic bags in their pockets at all times? I do, and I don't even have a dog (side effect from walking them at the shelter, I guess).

I HOPE IT DOES BECOME A CRIMINAL OFFENSE TO LEAVE DOG POOP JUST LYING AROUND! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/mad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":mad:"><br><br><br><br>
i have a dog, i walk her a billion times a day, and i always pick up her poop. not because i'm scared of getting a fine, but because it's just freakin' common courtesy to your neighbours! i can't tell you how many times i've wanted to let my kids run around barefoot on some grass at a park or even in the backyard area of our townhouse complex but haven't, because people leave all their dogs' **** lying around everywhere!<br><br><br><br>
yes, poop is gross, and yes, nobody likes having to pick it up, but imo you take on that responsibility when you decide to adopt a dog. if you can't do it, don't get a dog! end of story.

I think it's disgusting when people don't clean up after their dogs. In my town, some streets you walk down are terrible. I agree with Kreeli, if you're not responsible enough to clean up after your dog, don't have one!
