To put dog **** bags on top of car?

Sat outside my horses field waiting for the carrier. Car pulls up and two women get out and take 6 dogs for a walk up the path. 3 times so far (they are still in sight at the mo) have they stopped bagged up the dog poo and proceeded to drop the bags on the floor and walk off.

Would I be unreasonable to pick up Sian bags and dump them on their car bonnet with a note saying to take them home with them?

hell no do it!!

just make sure you stay there to watch so we know what going on!

Do it, but leave a note explaining politely that they are potentially extremely harmful to horses.

Definitely do it.
Someone lobbed a bag of dog poo over my gate a little ago.
It soon went back the other side.
And dog poo in bags kills horses!

Yup I would def do this.
Why do folk go to the effort of bagging poo just to leave it, don't get that at all.

TemptressofWaikiki Wed 21-Mar-18 12:59:34

Yes, do it! But accidentally open the bags onto hood of car... grin

Do it! Disrespectful fuckers.

I expect they are planning to pick them up on their way back.

reallyanotherone Wed 21-Mar-18 13:01:52

Being charitable, do you think they are intending to pick them up on the way back?

CrushedCornflakes Wed 21-Mar-18 13:02:55

Are they bagging it because they don't want to carry it on their walk but are coming back the same way so intend picking up the bags on the walk back I wonder.

Ihatemyclients Wed 21-Mar-18 13:03:20

Why do people do this? Better to leave the poo unbagged to decompose than to leave plastic lying around!!

littlepeas Wed 21-Mar-18 13:04:17

They must be - they’ve done the worst bit!! What’s the point of picking up shit, just to leave it in a bag - there probably isn’t a bin on their route and they’ll pick it up on the way back.

InBlackwaterWoods Wed 21-Mar-18 13:04:47

I was going to say they may be picking them up on the way back to the car! I do this, saves me carrying loads of poo bags around!
Maybe benefit of doubt until they come back? if they dont pick it up then go for it!

ObiJuanKenobi Wed 21-Mar-18 13:06:06

I was going to say yes definitely do it but never knew people bag it up for later! How odd.

littlepeas Wed 21-Mar-18 13:07:14

It’s not odd really - would you like to carry 3 plus bags of shit with you on a walk?

Ihatemyclients Wed 21-Mar-18 13:09:50

@littlepeas no I wouldn't but if I had a dog I would recognise it as a responsibility that I had and one I had to accept if I wanted to be a dog owner. even if they were coming back for it it's still irresponsible - who knows what animal could eat it in the meantime (or some other good soul who didn't know the owner was coming back might feel compelled to pick it up themselves).

If you aren't willing to deal with these things properly you aren't responsible enough for a dog!

ObiJuanKenobi Wed 21-Mar-18 13:10:29

It is odd to me actually, everyone finds different things odd after all.
I wouldn't finish a picnic, for example, and leave a plastic bag of my rubbish lying about and come back for it after a walk.

DontWannaBeObamasElf Wed 21-Mar-18 13:10:47

@littlepeas No one LIKES to do it. Just like I don’t particularly enjoy wiping my baby’s shitty arse but I do it anyway because it’s my responsibility.

OP YANBU. Go for it. I almost rolled over one with the buggy the other morning as after being squished a few times it just looked like an empty bag.

Do it..,cunts

Ylvamoon Wed 21-Mar-18 13:12:30

hmm maybe they leave them and pick up later...

Don't like it, don't have a sodding dog.

HTH

AboutAGallonofDietCoke Wed 21-Mar-18 13:15:27

There's shit in bags everywhere on the walk to my local primary. Doubt they'll be picking it up.
Besides that, you don't just leave it so someone else can tread in it because you don't fancy carrying it.
Ridiculous

UpstartCrow Wed 21-Mar-18 13:17:43

Everyone says they pick it up but the countryside is littered with bags of dog shit. Its disgusting.
Pick it up and take it with you.

littlepeas Wed 21-Mar-18 13:18:43

I didn’t say I did it myself, just that I can see why others do. I also think it’s a bit extreme to stage a dirty protest when in all likelihood they will pick the bags up on their way back. I agree it would seem odd to apply the same logic to a picnic though, strangely!

You can buy bags with 2 compartments, one for used poo bags and a smaller on for clean poo bags. It’s gross to leave poo bags on the ground.
