I guarantee you that if you were to put on some shorts and sandals, and go carelessly trouncing around in the woods of NC this time of year, you'd have a high likelihood of being bitten by a snake. Animals will be animals, and will act normally within their habitats.

tbqh I just get tired of dog owners being irresponsible. I think disposing of your animal's waste anywhere other than your own trash can, or publicly marked pet waste receptacles, is wrong. If you do this, you're not quite as bad as people who don't pick it up at all, but you're up there. People pay to have their trash picked up. If you throw trash in someone else's container, then you're basically getting something for free that they have to pay for. Plus you're potentially leaving them with a nasty surprise if it cooks for a couple days.
Sure, you're doing the world a favor by disposing of waste. But if you're gonna lower your standards enough to physically remove an animal's excrement from the ground and place it in a bag, at least lower them enough to walk your little baggie back to your own trash can.
