A woman said that in order to bring attention to the issue of dog poo on the streets she began decorating the fecal matter with strawberries and whip cream.

By decorating the poo, dog owners will have no choice but to clean up after their dogs, the woman claims.

Theresa Ritchie of the United Kingdom, also carries Nutella in her handbag to spread on the dog feces on her way to work. Ritchie hopes her decorative technique will make the owners of the dogs in Peterhead, aware that someone is watching them.

Ritchie is a member of the Pick Up Peterhead organization. “People in Peterhead are regularly stepping into dog mess on the pavements. I wanted to highlight the problem in a fun way. It shows people are watching dog owners, who do not bother to clean up after their pets,” Ritchie said.

“Poop sometimes lay in the streets for eight weeks,” she added.
