I live in the country. We have a ditch. Motorists who live in residential areas, roll their windows down and shove their fast food wrappers and cans out their windows into my ditch. It sucks. Because I have to mow the ditch and clean up that crap. They would never do that in their villages.
I drive my dogs to the village to walk them. I pick up poop. But I don't feel any qualms about letting them pee anywhere they want. And if the poop in someone's yard, I pick it up, but I really don't worry too much about the fact that they did poop in the yard. There are a lot of things pooping that no one cleans up. The fact that a dog did, and its person picked it up, is not the end of the world.
I would have taken the comment as hostile. And I might have told the person to get a life. As for the dad who swore at the little girl, well, what a big hero he is. I wonder if he would have done the same if the pit bull owner was a young man, maybe a black man, I wonder if he would have been as quick off his couch and as free with his tongue.
