There's nothing more frustrating than lazy dog owners not picking up after their dogs.

Actually, there is something worse: when dog owners don't pick up after their dogs that took a dump on your lawn.


And it doesn't help if you're not the confrontational type. Your bottled anger festers like the pile of warm dog poo baking in the sun on your property.

But what's a poor passive homeowner to do?

Shame the rude pet owners by revealing their identity for all to see, of course.


Steve Tamblyn of Adelaide, Australia, had enough of the unsolicited fertilization of his front yard. So he devised a way to discourage others from doing the same thing.

Instead of removing the waste himself, Tamblyn added a picture of the perpetrator in action next to the unclaimed poop.

The self-proclaimed "pet detective" had a CCTV camera installed on his property facing the street to capture unsuspecting pedestrians with their pets doing their dirty deed then walking on.

It didn't take long for Tamblyn to capture the crime. Some of the retrieved footage showed a golden retriever squatting on its haunches and dropping a deuce, or two. Maybe three.

It was a prodigious pile.

The owner then proceeded to walk away from Tamblyn's property with nary a backward glance.


The woman from the video is now immortalized as a laminated screen capture and used as a sign post to warn other pet owners that Tamblyn is not one to be messed with.

He's also hoping she'll notice the sign and feel mortified enough to finally remove the stale stink bomb.

He even posted a warning on Facebook.

"[I] took a screenshot and put a picture right by the number left there, so I thought if she walks past and sees that there's a good chance she'll clean it up."

Tamblyn is a dog owner himself and often takes walks in the lower Mitcham area.

"I'm sick of dodging parcels left on the footpath by lazy dog owners so I thought I'll take some action here and help clean up the footpaths."


As of this writing, the poo is still there though.

Tamblyn stated:


"I've been checking the surveillance each morning to see whether she has [stopped or walked by]."
"There have been a lot of dog walkers though walk past and notice it so I think this might be the last deposit left on my verge."


People empathized with Tamblyn.



Inspired by Tamblyn, others are sharing their newly installed poo cams as well.


Irresponsible pet owners beware or it could be you caught in the act.

Or caught not acting.

Pick up your pooches poop people. Please.

If you live on this earth and you're fortunate enough to form long-lasting relationships with different people, chances are you'll know the pain of heartbreak. It's an unavoidable fact of life.

We are not guaranteed to stay with one person forever, as we were reminded once Redditor disturbance of mirrors asked the online community,

"People whose long-term relationship faded, what was the final straw that made you realize it was time to call it a day?"

There is always that "one." There is always going to be that person.

That person who you will always remember. And when they are the one who you regret losing most... they are the ghost that will haunt you forever.

I have a few escapees. I'll never know how it would've turned out. But that is part of why I'm haunted. I need to discuss....

Redditor u/AssistantNo1733 wanted to discuss all the times we've lost in love by asking:

Who's the one who got away?
