Marc Morgan: defecating dogs

See this message from Marc Morgan, President, LeDroit Park Civic Association:

Please Police your dogs [1 Attachment]


Dear Neighbors,
I'm recent weeks, we have noticed quite a few residents allowing their dogs to defecate on public and private property without removing the waste. Please pick up after your pet, and encourage your neighbors to do so as well. If you notice someone allowing their dog to defecate without picking it up, please remind them of the law or report them. Let's all be good neighbors, and keep our community clean!
Thank You!
