It is quite obvious that the trash bins in the Fawn Lake parking lot are not available in the winter months. Yes, this is an inconvenience for those of us who regularly walk our dogs in this area and no, it is not that big of a deal to carry your poop bag home to deposit it in your own trash bin.
And so my fellow dog owners, I implore you to be considerate of all who enjoy the beauty of Fawn Lake, and please refrain from leaving poop bags lying on the ground for someone else to clean up. I also remind you that just because there is snow or ice on the ground does not mean that you should not continue to pick up after your dog. When the snow and ice are gone, the poop remains and is a source of contamination of our local groundwater.
Thanks for your consideration.
