Alert “06880” reader Chip Stephens took a walk in Winslow Park this beautiful early spring morning. He sent along a photo, of a cute-looking puppet or sculpture or something, hanging in the trees:
Here’s what else Chip emailed:
The crocuses were up, but so was something else: many, many bags of dog droppings.
Folks pick them up with plastic bags, then throw them into the woods, or trees.
I got a large bag, and started picking them up. The final tally was about 317 blue bags. Most were filled with dog doo. There were also a half dozen beer bottles in blue bags, plus a dozen soda cans.
We have a beautiful park. Do you think we can all help keep it clean? Drop those droppings in the receptacle on the way out, please.
