Horse riders: Please scoop the poop, too | Letter to the Editor
March 12, 2013 · 11:06 AM
Regarding the letter titled “Owners need to scoop poop” (March 6), I heartily agree. I have been bike riding all over Island Center Forest very regularly for quite some time. A group of us go religiously and fervently discuss the plethora of said poop on a regular basis. However, we feel that the real poopertrators are the horse owners. I guess that it is easy to ignore your pony’s pies when they fall behind you on the trail, although they do make a decided plopping sound. I wish that the horse owners would please pick up after themselves.
For the record, six of us rode the trails on Sunday. We counted 48 equine ejections and only one doggy dropping.
