Property Owner's Way Of 'Shaming' Dog Walker Who Doesn't Pick Up After Pet Is Going Viral

popular

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.
