  • Several individuals walk their dogs along the W 4th st.fence at riverside cemetery and do not remove the landmines left behind by their (rather large)pets - its disgustingly rank in the summertime for those of us who live near by and like to walk the same sidewalks. I would like to see these people clean up after their pets.

  • I'm in complete agreement with both of you! Animal abuse is a disgusting and disturbing thing to see. It has been found that people that abuse animals will go on to abuse humans. Unfortunately, we don't have animal control in this area and our law enforcement is not equipped to take that on. I think you will see a change in many states animal laws. People are pushing for breed neutral laws which will make the owner responsible for their dogs actions. Many states are also making abuse a felony punishable by jail time and hearty fines. Michigan is taking the lead on this.

    And yes, one of my pet peeves is people that don't clean up after their dog. It is a law in Spencer and many other cities as well as just common sense. If you see it happen, take a grocery sack to the owner and ask them kindly to clean it up.
