Now Here’s an Idea: A Spanish Town Mails Dog Poop Back to Dog Owners

A small town near Madrid, Spain, has an innovative, really weird way to deal with people who don’t pick up after their dogs: Delivering the poop back to the owners.

It’s no joke. In February, Brunete, a small town on the outskirts of Madrid with 10,100 inhabitants, recruited 20 volunteers to patrol the streets, looking for people who let their dogs poop and then walked blithely away, unconcerned with the fate of the pile.

Then, the volunteers would strike, employing a two-pronged attack. First, they’d approach the offenders and casually strike up a conversation with them, probing for information.
