Hotels threaten to press charges against British teens who deliberately poop in swimming pools to ruin vacationsBy Mason White 2:22 PM August 14, 2014

British teens were caught deliberate pooping in hotel swimming pools as part of a new crazy trend sweeping across the country aimed at ruining people’s vacations.
The trend is known as “logging,” and it is infecting thousands of innocent tourists with harmful bacteria that cause diarrhea and sickness.
The infection can cause irritable bowel syndrome and even death in extreme cases. The teens are ruining vacations on purpose, and hotels are seeking ways to stop the poopers.
At least one hotel has issued a stern warning to guests after their pools were soiled several times. In some cases, children as young as 10, are currently involved in “logging.”
The teens deliberately poop in a pool full of people, and then sit back and watch in amusement as people try to escape from the pool like a scene from a movie.
A law firm has already received more than 20 complaints this season from travelers who fell ill after swimming in such pools.
“Logging” has become such a problem at a resort in Egypt, that the staff at the Holiday Village Red Sea are threatening guests with eviction and a fine of $2,500 for pooping in the pool.
“There have been numerous cases of excrement found in the pools in recent weeks. We understand that accidents can happen, but the frequency of this suggests that this no longer remains accidental,” the hotel said in a statement.
The resort is asking guests to be vigilant and report any suspicious activity to employees. Problems have also been reported in Turkey, Greece, and Spain.
A hotel in Turkey, has closed their pool nine times in recent weeks, due to poop.
