Picking up the bags and putting them by the entrance, that is.

Me! With a note, because I have to assume the jackass is going to come back there, and hopefully he sees the pile of dog poop bags and feels some guilt and realizes that people actually care about littering.

If there were a garbage can at the entrance of the park, hopefully jackass dog-owner wouldn't leave his baggies out in the woods, and I wouldn't have to do the snarky thing.

Also, if you aren't going to carry out your dog poop, don't bother putting it in a bag. At least then it'll decompose away over time. This makes jackass dog-owner both stupid AND mean.

I agree. I just was amused that you were assuming the jackass could read.

We play 'poop golf'. Pick a good club, ie, decent stick & flick it off trail into the 'safety' zone (only works in woods). Plastic bagging (substitute paper bag?) poop seems silly (or even stupid) -- maybe one should avoid dog walking in nice grassy parks.

Plastic bagging is more or less a necessity in cities. Somebody must have cracked down in Florence. When I was there in 2014 it was a real minefield. By 2015 people were cheerfully picking up after the dogs and there really wasn't any particularly noticeable mess. The husband in the family I was living with in 2015 had three dogs to walk, and he used napkins to pick it up and toss it in the trash. I think plastic bags may be slightly harder to come by there than here. My cousin has had dogs in NYC most of the time, and he always has a few bags in his pocket, doesn't think much about it. Just does it.
