Homemade sign: Stop leaving 'huge piles of poop' in Midtown yard

Homemade sign: Stop leaving 'huge piles of poop' in Midtown yard

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - Scoop your poop.

A Midtown couple found an interesting homemade sign in a Midtown Memphis yard.

Candace Gray and her husband, Denico, came across the sign while walking their dog, Rosie, down Vinton Avenue between Belvedere Avenue and Cleveland Street.

The sign reads: "Please do not leave your huge piles of poop here anymore."

The sign's creator attached a plastic bag at the base of the sign--presumably a gesture aimed at giving the culprit a bag to use next time.

A Memphis ordinance makes it illegal for pet owners to leave feces on public or private property.

Sec. 8-16-9. - Defecation by dogs or cats.
