ASPEN, Colorado — The city of Aspen wants the scoop on dog poop.
By holding a poetry contest on canine feces, the city hopes to raise awareness about unclaimed dog poop in Aspen. In a survey conducted in October, Aspen residents deemed left-behind feces their biggest complaint about living here.
“We are hoping to get good poetry and cast a fresher light on a problem that requires awareness and personal responsibility,” said Brian Long, the city parks and open space ranger.
Submissions for the contest are due early July. All types of poetry are accepted.
