Dog parks are an oasis for millions of pet owners—pups can run around, interact with other dogs and get a taste of nature without having to head out of town on weekends.
Some careless dog owners, however, don’t abide by dog park rules, or simple common decency, and leave their dogs’ waste behind for others to clean up.
Well, a small town in Spain, reports the Telegraph, has decided to remedy the situation by mailing the discarded dog excrement back to the offending owners .
The paper reports that the town council of Brunete, located about 20 miles from Madrid, has undertaken a complex effort to crack down on the disrespectful dog owners. Twenty volunteers have been enlisted to approach dog owners who leave their pet’s poop behind, and to strike up a conversation with the goal of finding out the name of the dog.
“With the name of the dog and the breed it was possible to identify the owner from the registered pet database held in the town hall,” a spokesman from the council told the Telegraph.
Once the owner’s address was confirmed, the dog poop is scooped up, placed in a box containing the town hall’s insignia and delivered via courier to the owner’s home. And to top it all off, the box is labeled, “Lost Property.”
I kinda like it — extreme to be sure — but effective.

The Writer’s Guild tossed a little list out this past week, trying to get attention (meow). They pronounced 101 shows to be TV’s “best written” of all time.
Time to sock it to the Harper Valley WGA. Name your own.
5. Scrubs:Bill Lawrence took up where Larry Gelbart left off. It’s “MASH: The Early Civilian Years”.
4. Sex & the City: The sex was never the story, believe it or not (and if you don’t, read TWoP’s 20-something set on how prudish Carrie Bradshaw *really* was). It was a Picasso-esque portrait of female friendship. In all its messy, disjointed, glory.
3. Deadwood: Someone called this series “Shakespeare in a 10-gallon hat”. Wisht it was me, what done it.
2. Frasier: Literate slapstick.
1.M*A*S*H: As much as the later years bored me, did the first 5 thrill.
