The best way to dispose of the matter is to simply flush it down the toilet, officials advise. Throwing it into the garbage can work as well.

If it goes in the garbage, it goes in a landfill. If it goes in a landfill, there is a fair probability it will leak to the water table. Flush it.

Train your dog to crap in its own yard Before taking it for a walk. Not hard to do and you can put it in your very own doggy dooley or pick and flush.
The problem will only get worse as hundreds of thousands of people and their dogs move into the Portland area,

OMG!!! Run for the hills!! It's The Invasion Of The Dog Owners!!
Cats help control the vermin and other pests. Why just the other day, mine brought home a snake she found in the yard.

Which at the spider which ate the fly and now the old lady's all confused. I'm tellin' PETA.
Stick your hand in it, pick up the poop, then ... your hand out, and tie it off for later disposal.

An actual purpose for subscribing to the Oregonian. So after I'm done using the plastic bag, what should I do with the newsprint?

LOL! You should call and ask if you can just subscribe to the bag.
I don't think I've seen one of those for a long time, but I do find a shovel useful for those occasions when I have to fling dog *** at my neighbor's house because his loose dog runs over to my yard to poop.

We have one of those neighbors. They just flat-out admit that the animal doesn't listen to them, so they basically give up. The scary thing is, they run a daycare.

Poster's Note: I live across the street from a grade school's athletic field, which a good number of dog owners ... area. It isn't. The majority of dog owners, that use the school field, do not scoop up after their dogs.

I thought scooping was The Law in Portland.
Because of this, the school doesn't use the field for the purpose it was intended for. The PTA has paid for and posted signs requesting dog owners scoop up after their dogs. It has done little, if any, good.

If scooping is the law, they should get a cop out there. They'll all get the message pretty quick.
Otherwise, take pictures of the offenders and post them. On the net and at the field.
Maybe the person responsible for the dog deaths in Portland's Laurelhurst Park, a few years ago, just got tired of stepping in all the dog ***.

That person is a mental case regardless of why they poisoned the dogs. The kind of person who, for example, shoots and kills three neighbors and wounds a couple of others because their fireworks offended him somehow.

You do realize the irony of this? Snakes control pests, and aren't an introduced predator like cats.

yeah but a snake eats a pest about once a full moon.

My cat didn't kill the snake, just brought it to the gas grill. I guess she expected me to cook it for her. I tossed it over the fence so hopefully it's back in the wetlands area where it can help reduce those noisey little frogs.

um, pick it up with what, Don's newspaper baggie? Then I end up with a poopie baggie.

It is the law in Portland, but it is not enforced.

I guess you didn't read my post from last August .

A person did do that a few years ago in Portland. And when the dogs start to die in Laurelhurst Park, he was put at the top of the list of suspects by the Portland Police and the Multnomah County District Attorney.
