Sidewalk Droppings

People who live near the beach are often confronted with human feces in their alleys, on their sidewalks, on the walk streets, in side bushes near their homes.  Most people just clean it up.
This is environmentally contaminated waste and should be treated as such.
Gonzo Rock of the walk streets north of Washington found this Monday (above photo) as he left his house.
He reported such to Arturo Pina, district director for Councilman Bill Rosendahl.  Arturo reported it to the proper agencies who handle such.   It was cleaned the next day.  In fact, inspectors found more than one site on this walk street that had to be environmentally cleaned.
Keep your animals clear of such.
