An uncaring dog owner is allegedly using Schroon’s Community Garden to bury their dog’s poop in the bed of a gardener. Now the Schroon Lake Chamber of Commerce has taken measures to stop the creep responsible.

Emily Rossi-Snook first posted about this outrageous act on the Schroon Lake Voice Facebook Page on August 15.

From Emily:

“The Community Garden is a wonderful contribution to Main Street. Many of us, led by the efforts of the Chamber staff, plant, nurse, harvest, and share our bounty. COULD THE PERSON WHO IS USING MY PLOT AS A TOILET FOR THEIR DOG PLEASE CEASE. It is disgusting; it is keeping my plants from growing, and it's vandalism. I'm sorry for those of you who have to read this. I don't know how else to stop it.

 And from the Chamber:

TO WHOMEVER IS USING THE SCHROON LAKE COMMUNITY GARDEN PLOTS TO BURY THEIR DOG DROPPINGS...These garden plots are paid for and lovingly planted and tended by our year-round and summer residents. They are used to grow vegetables that are being picked and eaten. Why someone thinks this is a place to leave dog droppings is beyond us, but now we'll be watching electronically (the Chamber is right across the street).

This is not the first time we have reported acts of vandalism at the Garden. Read about it here.
