Poop Patrol in Paris

Having recently returned from a research trip to Paris, I couldn’t resist sharing this post on the poop patrol in Paris!

OK, so poop patrol is my own term, but the patrolling does really exist.


NPR‘s Eleanor Beardsley reports on the Parisian officials who enforce the laws requiring dog owners to clean up their dogs’ waste.

This story really hits home for me in a new way, since the dog was along for the research stay in France this time (for the first time).

My own experience of living in France during research stays periodically over the past two decades suggests that Parisians are indeed getting much better about cleaning up after their dogs.  That said, your shoes can still have unpleasant encounters on the streets of Paris. So, watch your step!
