Watch out for land mines at Main Beach

It's come to our attention that some really rude behavior is happening down at Main Beach.

Yes, the Main Beach that's the number four best beach in America.

Apparently there are people walking their dogs in the early morning and late evening and not cleaning up after them. That leaves everyone else to fend for themselves.

We're wondering if any solid citizens could go and take some photos or video of this happening and we'll post them here. Let's leverage public shame as a tool against the illegal dumpers.

  1. There have been a number of articles in the very local press about this ... including arguments, police called, AND people taking photos! And no offense to dog-lovers, but just because you picked up their POOP doesn't fix the PEE on the sand problem. I mean, really, EWWWWWWWWWWWWWW.

    Maybe we need more social pressure.

  3. DOG OWNERS: IT'S TIME TO STOP THINKING OUR BEACHES ARE A DOG TOILET!!!!

    I'm so sick of it too, especially when I see little kids run in and out of the shit left behind on the sand. It really freaks out parents and blows a beautiful day at the beach when you have to cart along large containers of Wet Ones to constantly wipe excrement off the little one's feet.

    I think if anyone catches an owner not cleaning up after it's animal poops, then they should grab a mutt mitt, scoop up the poop and hurl it back at the owner, especially when these owners are getting back in the car. Yes, this sounds like a rude gesture vs. rude gesture, but the civilized way of "reminding" the owner that their dog just pooped and did they forget to clean it up? - never seems to work anymore.

  4. That so sad b/c it ruins it for all of us who clean up after our dogs.... and properly exercise them BEFORE the beach visit so they are behaved and there are no accidents!!

  6. Or maybe you all need to stop complaining so much about banal things like dog poop on your beach which is far more natural than all the trash and cigarette butts. or maybe you need to start writing about all the people peeping in the ocean and how it's so gross to swim in pee oh and those pesky fish with their smell...
