  • Pick up your dog's waste

    While running errands in Lincoln Park on Saturday (Jan. 24), I passed a woman walking an adorable fluffy, white dog.  After the dog did its business just off the sidewalk on Lincoln Avenue, the woman stepped over the pile of excrement and continued her stroll. As a dog owner myself, I was shocked by such irresponsible behavior, especially when the woman had several green doggie waste bags tied to her belt. When I turned to remind her to pick up after her pooch, she replied “under the L track.” Chicago Municipal Code §7-12-420 states that unless you are a blind person walking with your guide dog, you will be subject to a fine of not less than $50 and not more than $500 for each offense if you fail to remove any excrement deposited in a public location by your pet. Therefore, it does not matter if your furry friend chooses to excrete under a bridge, CTA “L” track, on Oak Street Beach or in your neighbor’s front yard — by law it’s your responsibility to pick it up.
