Dog Poop

There are about 200,000 dogs kept as pets in Paris, and they produce 16 tons of poop every day (not a typo). The situation has improved in recent years, since a fine of 183 Euros per infraction has been enacted. Dog owners are now more disciplined - thanks to signs like this: “I like my neighborhood, so I pick up after my dog.” Nowadays walking along the sidewalks of Paris yields fewer unpleasant surprises than before.
