Letter to the Editor: Dog owners – please clean up your pooch’s poop

I am appalled at dog owners who do not clean up after their pets. My daughter and I went out to the East End of Donner Lake this past weekend with our dog for a quick swim and witnessed dog owners ignore their pets when they went off to do their business on the side of the trail. This is a vital responsibility as a pet owner.

To keep our area pristine and keep this privilege, people need to clean up and take responsibility. Put those plastic bags to good use; clean it up and pack it out when you leave. Don’t ruin it for the rest of us. It doesn’t matter where you are, please clean up after your pet.
