While biking today, I came across this sign:
Pick up and take away your animal’s waste
Emportez les excréments de votre animal
and there is a little drawing to show you how to do it in case your intelligence betrays you :)
I've actually seen people picking up and taking away the waste of their dogs. I was very impressed! I can't even imagine seeing that happening in the Middle East. Dogs and horses' excrement on sidewalks and roadsides are left behind until a poor Indian worker who wakes up at 4.00 am in the morning picks it up as part of his daily routine.
Why are Canadians obliged to clean after their animals and if they don't, they get penalized, while we, Arabs, don't even consider it as an option?
