Took matter into my own hands (long)
Fecal matter that is, my neighbors' dog's poop bag that they refuse to throw away! There is a middle aged couple down the street from me with a really sweet pitbull. We live next to a huge condo complex. Behind us is a large lawn in front of the HOA's pool and a small clubhouse. The pitbull owners are generally very nice people, I like them, but they got this notion in their head that the grass at the pool is a "park", and the "park" should have a bench so they can sit and throw a frisbee for their dog and when it poops, have a garbage can handy so they don't have to carry it home, half a block away.
On the lawn is a post with complementary poop bags provided by the HOA, they have them located in several locations. So the pitbull owners leave their dog's poop bags either at the base of the post or at the entrance to the pool. In the past I've taken them and thrown them away. There is a garbage in the pool and if you stick your hand through the fence, its right there. Last night I got tired of seeing an ugly poop bag and brought their dog's poop back to their unit and placed it on their front lawn.
I don't know if they'll get the hint. The funny thing is there is a real park, filled with garbage cans, grass, benches and baggies also a half block from them. From the dog jumping to catch the frisbee and being overweight, it's hind legs are sore and will probably need surgery. The owner told me his dog did not like it's kibble and would top it with Ready Whip to encourage eating. I had an almost new 10lb box of The Honest Kitchen at my house and brought it down for them, hoping the dog would get better nutrition and lose some weight. The owners said their dog really likes it and after a few weeks think the weight is coming off. Now lets hope my view of the grass remains free of brown smelly bags.
