Edina, one of Minneapolis´s more affluent suburbs, has announced it will no longer be providing free doggie bags to the area´s pet owners because people have been looting the dispensers they are kept in various different parks.
The bags were provided to ensure that dogwalkers cleaned up after their animals had done a poop, however Parks and Recreations´s John Keprios has reported that "People walk up and take them until they´re gone."
He also added that it was "not just one isolated incident. It´s everywhere and often." It was costing the Edina Parks and Recreation US$12,000 a year to keep the dispensers stocked up.
