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.

Sometimes I think back to a teacher I had when I was a kid who demanded to know whether any of us were "raised in a barn" in response to crappy behavior. Namely littering. She hated littering. Can you blame her? It's a horrible habit and some people do it with no sense of shame. She dedicated much of her time to telling students to pick up after themselves and dispose of things properly. For that, I'm thankful.

But why didn't anyone else get the memo? The trash I see on the streets is obscene.

People had lots of thoughts to share after Redditor SneakyStriedker876 asked the online community,

"What seemingly uncivilized thing is commonplace in society?"

I love presents. I try to hide my enthusiasm, and I do my best to appease the greater public by saying "it's the thought that counts." But that is a WHOLE lie. I don't just love gifts, I love great gifts. And if you go rogue from my lists, please keep a receipt. It's just plain rude to divert from what the recipient has requested.

This thought process has emerged from experience. I have received some trash presents over the years and now I'm too old to pretend you just went crazy while shopping. Like... "do you even know me?!"

Redditor u/sulemannkhann wanted to hear all about the presents some of us have received that we prayed, came with a receipt, by asking:

What's the worst birthday gift you ever got?

I'm still on the fence about this whole extraterrestrial situation. I need more proof. Now I'm not naive enough to think that in this vast, endless universe only the human race exists. I just need proof, tangible, solid, didn't see it from my trailer through beer goggles proof.

I also need proof about the afterlife, another out there topic. Truth be told, I've never been that into this whole conversation. I've got enough daily problems on this planet, let alone worrying about making Will Smith's biggest hits into documentaries and not just popcorn/comedy space farce.

But let's compare thoughts...

Redditor u/ValencikHannibal197 wanted to discuss life beyond this planet, what do we really think? They asked:

What's the best theory on UFOs or aliens you've ever heard??
