If garbage turned into rubber ducks, the lake in Toronto would be much duckier. And no person would be without a duck!

Is pet waste really a problem? Because I would have thought legions of wild critters running loose would be doing the same thing.

I've lived in beach and bay cities a long time so have heard a bit about this. Waste from critters in the wild goes through a slow decomposition process. In the wild, most waste slowly becomes fertilizer for plants where it drops (on the dirt). In the city everything is covered with cement so pet waste almost immediately gets washed into storm drains which then drain into the nearest body of water. It hasn't had much time to decompose so you've basically got fecal matter in the water. Depending on currents, this matter has been known to wash ashore. Anyone for a swim now?

That makes sense. I'm not near a lake or coast myself. I'm in "crik" country. But I'm all for peaople cleaning up after their pets.  Especially on a hot sunny day after a week of no rain with the wind blowing our way across dog-walking territory.
