Despite the recent uproar over dog “caca” on North End baseball fields, a parent sends in these photos of dog owners continuing to use the ball fields to walk their pets despite “No Dogs” signs.
I let this one woman know dogs aren’t allowed on baseball fields. She said,”even if they just run around?” I let her know all dogs poop when running around and even if she picks it up there is still poop that our kids roll around and get sick from. I pointed out the no dog signs and told her of nearby ok lawns. I took a picture of her since she stayed for a while after our conversation.
Spoke to another woman who says she walks her dog here everyday. She showed me the paper towel she uses to pick up. As we discussed how poop is still leftover once picked up she told me sometimes she picnics on the field and has to move because of the dog poop smell. After our nice chat she stayed on the field walking her dog for ten more minutes. Poop on the diamond.
A nice man quickly moved off the field when I talked to him, noting that he missed the signs. We need more signs at the park entrances.
When is the park department follow up happening?
