NYC and other cities issue citations if you fail to clean up after your pet; Charleston needs to consider doing the same. In some upper peninsular areas no area of grass is safe to step on and areas like Simonton park have become a virtual pet toilet with little to no grass surviving (despite provided waste bags and trash cans). Please clean up after your pet!
Shaming does not solve this issue and there are far too many disrespectful and selfish pet owners out there. I suggest we empower the parking enforcement people to write tickets for substantial fines and to give warnings for bad pet supervision. These city employees are on the prowl in every neighborhood and they can help make a difference. Reply • Follow • 3/30/2017
