DOG LITTER ON BUENOS AIRES STREETS



PETITION
We state our frustration with the high level of dog excrement on the streets of Buenos Aires. We want to see dog owners held responsible for their pet’s litter. Accountability means, we want financial fines to be actively issued by the City of Buenos Aires to dog owners who fail to pick up their dog’s litter. The time has come for Buenos Aires police to be more active in enforcing the rules!

BA POO 
Clearly dog litter is an ongoing problem in Buenos Aires area which is of concern to many city residents. It is typical in this type of problem that the residents themselves are often the ones who cause the problem. The keys to solving this problem are increased awareness and a change in behavior.

The solution is related to changing resident’s behavior. Clearly by taking a walk on the streets of Buenos Aires today, it is obvious that the city’s current policy is not working. Dog litter is everywhere on the streets and sidewalks of the city. Dog owners are commonly seen letting their dog’s shit in public parks, where signs clearly stating dogs are not allowed. The only way to change bad behavior is to punish it! Just as parking violations, urinating in public are fined in the city, dog shitting must also be actively punished. The fines should be in turn used to finance the costs of keeping the city clean.

Not only is dog litter offensive to have to look at, but it is also dangerous to our children. Toxocara can stay in the ground for up to three years after the animal has contaminated. Dog litter on the streets and parks of Buenos Aires is an embarrassment to visitors.
We, the residents of Buenos Aires want to keep our city clean and dog-litter free!
Sincerely,
