First mate thatís a reasonable suggestion.
Thing is, I think the rogue poos are from (normally) responsible dog owners who are just to Ďbusyí to notice their dogsí efforts at the time it happens - and other days they may well notice (and pick-up).
Iím not saying the culprits are nasty people, itís a vigilance issue. In the past Iíve pointed out to owners who are great dog owners (I see them regularly) but theyíre just missed the event at the time. It takes seconds for a dog to unload BUT owners know their dogsí behaviours and routine so should be ready.
Itís got to the state on GG where Iíd support a ban on dogs on GG, which would inconvenience me a bit but we all have to make sacrifices for the greater good. Itís not OK to foul a public space, the outcomes of fouling for individual victims are disgusting, having to clean yourself, your kids, your clothes, your car, your house and the persistent stench of dog mess for days afterwards.
I picked up two Ďextrasí yesterday, would have done more but ran out of doggy bags. One of them was MASSIVE, it took two bags to remove it, this was from a large-bodied dog, only the smell indicated it was not human it was that big.
This is not a new issue, itís been years.
Iíd be interested on this thread about views of non-dog owners, because this needs addressing and soon, perhaps collectively a petition is needed to end the dog era on GG ?
