Susan Miller was so mad that she stepped into dog droppings left by her neighbor's pet, she didn't waste time in sending back a smelly gift, according to police.
The Naperville woman allegedly gathered up the excrement and threw it at the neighbor's sliding patio screen Wednesday night. She also strung several plastic bags filled with dog feces "on various places on the patio," police said.
Miller was charged with disorderly conduct.
She still looks mad.
Charged! She should get a metal.
There has got to be a better way to handle the situation, but I can understand the urge to do this. Especially if there were as many droppings as the article would imply.
Looks like she could use a good BM herself!
SHE was charged? For returning property?
We need a better story - and maybe an address fro the neighbor. Maybe a few hundred lbs of dog doo sent in the mail would help.
Maybe the Police would like the same.
Hubby used to call the "piles" secret data pods.
I thought that was how you were supposed to return dog shi’ite to a neighbor. As for here picture, the police have a habit of arresting you first thing in the morning, and if you are already up and groomed, waiting until after a sleepless night to take pictures.
I did the same thing once, not quite as bad. Just took a shovel and threw the turds on my neighbor’s driveway.
Some people don’t even carry bags on their walks. Some don’t even use bags provided for free at dog parks.
It happens to me all the time. I go to take my dog out and I have to take two bags, one for her business and one to clean my yard from the neighbor’s dog!
Had a work-at-home neighbor who would get up in the morning and let his lab out to wander. The area was semi-rural. His hound would consistently show up at my fenced in springer spaniel and leave a morning cordial for him to sniff.
Being the neighborly type, I ^twice^ asked him to control his dog because my burden was large enough cleaning up behind my own animal inside the fence.
He ignored the request. After 5 deposits in the week, I picked up the droppings in a shovel, walked over to his shop (cabinet maker), knocked on the door. When he opened it, I deposited the mess on his shop floor, announced: “Your dog left this at my house.” and departed. No more problem.
Upshot...I sympathize with this woman but don’t condone the violence of her “return”.
I have always had dogs and currently have 3. I would never let them poop on someone else’s property. We use to have a neighbor who would let out their dog purposely to relieve himself on other people’s property so they wouldn’t clean it up. I can honestly say that I have felt that infuriated but never acted on it. However, enough is enough. Police should have considered this either a dispute and calmed the situation or charged the dog owners with something as well. Let the judge decide on both not just one. Just a thought
I put the piles I find in my yard on the sidewalk.
so the same dog owners and their mutts get to walk right through it the next day.
We had neighbors whose dogs found our front yard their personal dropping ground. I built a pyramid of poop in the middle of the sidewalk with every turd in my yard. When people think you’re a little crazy, it’s amazing how they’ll leave you alone AND your yard.
I don’t pick up after my dogs...
I catch it on the way down.
I take 2 bags just for my dog. He always goes twice for some reason. He does the same thing at the dog park. My back yard is fenced. But so far I have been lucky and haven’t had any poop I remember in the front.
What a world we are coming to. Government is in everything.
I’d never throw poop at a neighbor’s house but many is the time I’ve heard of neighbors dumping poop back on the perpetrator’s lawn.
My hubby does this at least 2 - 3 times a week...we don't have a dog because we don't want the work involved in properly taking care of one...why would we want the work of cleaning up after the neighbor's dog??...we have a leash law in our city...the neighbor's ignore this too...they open their side door and let the dog run and do it's business wherever...one of these days, we'll call animal control...I just hate to do that to the dog though because it doesn't know any better...the neighbor does!
