Spanish Town Mails Dog Poop Back To Owners Who Leave It On The Street
Officials in Brunete, a small town of 10,100 inhabitants on the outskirts of Madrid, came up with the idea for a social awareness campaign last year in a bid to stamp out its dog excrement problem.
“We contacted top advertising agency McCann about the doggy matter,” a spokesperson for Brunete Town Hall told The Local.
“We told them we didn’t have a penny to spend, but they found the idea so novel and exciting that they decided to work with us anyway.”
The first campaign saw offending pet owners chased by a remote-controlled turd on wheels with the message “Don’t leave me, pick me up!” written on it.
“The amount of dog poo on our streets dropped considerably as a result. But as soon as the volume started rising again we knew we had to try an even more direct approach.”
In February of this year, Brunete Town Hall recruited 20 volunteers to patrol the streets in search of guilty dog owners.
As soon as they spotted a poo that had gone astray, the undercover volunteers would approach the owners and strike up a casual conversation with them.
“They’d ask them what the dog’s name and pedigree was. With that information they could find out the address of the pooch’s owner from a registered pet database we have,” Brunete’s Town Hall spokesperson told The Local.
Volunteers would then pick up the turd, box it and deliver it to the pet owners along with an official fine warning, while cameramen filmed the embarrassing scene.
