There has been dog poop spread out and not picked up both on the bike path and also in the gutter on follybrook blvd inbetween the road where greenfield is and jordan lane.
I almost ran into it after passing a lady on a cell phone, oblivious to the world, who owned a black poodle that was not on a leash.. If it was you or whoever it was, Please pick up after your animal.

I suspect the bike path is used as a doggy pooping ground as I see lot of dogs and no owners with poop bags.
Don't be an inconsiderate slob, pick up after your pooch.

Why don't you be considerate & not nearly run people over with your bicycles'
Everytime we walk on a bike path, we are nearly run over by speeding reckless bikers!
Maybe that is the raason people don't stop to pick up a little pile of poop.
Or maybe b/c many people r breaking State Law & allowing their dogs off a leash on land that isn't theirs at all & it's unsafe for people w/bags to pick it up to start with.

I have some problems with bikes when they want to take up the whole path and not share, but that goes for the walkers too. It's also a problem with walkers on sidewalks in that respect, which is why I run in the road.

Lack of courteousness all around, young and old, or if they are on cell phones or listening to music they are not aware of their surroundings.
Bottom line is, besides a lack of common sense and basic courtesy is:
There is an ordinance in Wethersfield that requires you to pick up after your dog or be fined. There is no law that requires a leash in town, just that you have your dog under control. Most dogs I see off lead are not under control.
