Re: "What you bring on your ride needs to go home with you."

Someone mentioned bagged dog waste in trees.i occasionally do this, like many other dog owners. The idea is we can pick it up on the return journey.hangung it up keeps it off the ground. If we have gone the trouble to pick it up, it unlikely we would then just discard it as litter. some might thoug...

Re: "What you bring on your ride needs to go home with you."

While humans may be a filthy species as said somewhere up post, they are far from unique. In fact most species just discard what they don't want.

Re: "What you bring on your ride needs to go home with you."

When I was a teenager my Dad saw a neighbour allowing their dog to poo on our lawn. So he bagged the poo and knocked on their door to return it to them.

Re: "What you bring on your ride needs to go home with you."

I litter,NOTHING...No banana skins,,anything..This idea that "its ok,it's organic,it rots,I do not agree with..Why is it acceptable to fling banana skins?.If everyone does it,you end up with thousands of them all over.And do not get me started on poo bags flung up trees!..That is proper insanity.
