Dog waste is raw sewage, NOT fertilizer. Harmful organisms from dog poop transmit readily to children and adults and can survive for months on the ground. Just one week of accumulated dog poop can host 700 BILLION bacteria. Mowing just spreads the contamination everywhere.

WATCH VIDEO: Is your yard incubating toxic waste?

Sgt Poopers booth at Operation KindnessSunlight, cigarettes, leaded paint, prescription drugs… supposedly “safe,” widely recommended, encouraged by doctors, friends and parents… and since proven oh just slightly detrimental to our health.

Over the last 50 years, the list of “things we thought were okay” but aren’t continues to grow. Now we can add another: the seemingly innocuous waste of man’s best friend. But we can’t blame our pets: the problem is simply “who knew?”

Saturday, Operation Kindness Dog Day Afternoon at the Hawaiian Falls Water Park in Garland offered us an opportunity to educate people on the importance of cleaning up after their dogs. Dog waste is classified by the EPA as non-point source pollution, a biohazard that has serious impact watersheds across the world. We spoke to people and handed out fliers explaining the risks.

Many people commented that indeed they thought dog waste was fertilizer. But its really little different from human waste – a substance that -- if it contaminates water supply – can be deadly. And with 1.2 million registered dogs in the DFW area, that means 900,000 pounds of untreated waste deposited daily in our city.

The moral we are learning is that it’s not enough to pick up waste when we take our pets for walks. We need to keep our backyards clean.
