Dog owners in deep doodoo? DSNY to crack down on dog owners who leave pet's waste behind
Dog owners listen up - the Department of Sanitation is cracking down on dog owners who don't pick up after their pups.
The department announced it will be stepping up enforcement and ticketing dog owners who leave dog waste behind. Dog owners can now face up to a $250 fine.
DSNY Commissioner Jessica Tisch released a statement saying in part, "Keeping New York City clean is a ruff job, and any New York dog owner who thinks they can ignore their responsibilities is barking up the wrong tree. Our enforcement agents may not collar people over this, but they won't just roll over, either – they will write tickets."
