Dog poop sucks…no one likes picking up after their dog, but your dog’s poop may be more hazardous then you might think. According to the Huffington Post, dogs in the US create 10 million tons of poop each year. That much dog poop is enough to fill 3,800 trucks which would stretch from Boston to Seattle.  According to the article, just three days of 100 dogs poop is enough poop to cause serious problems. The article says that this much dog poop is enough to shut down 20 miles of watershed or bays for swimming and shellfishing because of the amount of bacteria in the poop.
