Popularity Contest for Poop?

Letter to the Editor to NY Daily News from Mary Castrovilla
July 28, 2013

At a horse competition and family-oriented fair last fall, there were dinner-plate-sized mounds of horse manure, unavoidable on the pathways to the restrooms. On the way home from Metro-North (in a residential, upscale area), I dodged 18 piles of dog feces.

Why does society put up with dog and horse feces, but not goose poop? Where do you expect the geese to “go” — literally and figuratively? When you’re in a park, you are in the geese’s home.

Scrape off your shoes and enjoy the (sub)urban parks that we are blessed to have.
