Dog Waste-Ask the City
What can I do about other people's dogs using my yard as a bathroom? They walk by and let their animals poop in my yard, leaving me to clean it up.
"For reference, the appropriate Municipal Code section follows:
6.06.50--Removal of Feces--Exception
A. Notwithstanding other provision in this title, it is unlawful for the owner or any other person accompanying a dog to cause or permit the dog to be on public or private property not owned or possessed by such a person, unless such person has in his or her immediate possession a device or implement with which to remove dog feces and a container or implement to use in transporting the feces to a garbage or refuse disposal can. It is unlawful for the owner of a dog to fail to remove the dog's feces from public or private property not owned or possessed by such a person to a garbage or refuse disposal can. This subsection does not apply on undeveloped land.
