There are few things more annoying and disgusting than neighbors who don’t pick up their dogs’ poo. And there’s a town in Spain called Burnete that isn’t gonna take it anymore.
They have a team of volunteers secretly wander the streets, looking for people who didn’t pick up after their dogs.
When a volunteer sees someone leave poo behind, they walk up to the person and strike up a conversation. And during the conversation, they find out the dog’s name and breed. They also pick up the poop.
Afterward, they plug the dog’s info into the city’s pet database to figure out who owns the dog and where they live. Then they take the dog poo the person left behind, put it in a box that says “Lost Property,” and MAIL it to their house.
In one week, they mailed 147 packages of dog feces to owners who left it behind. Since then they say they’ve seen a 70% drop in the amount of dog poop on the streets.
