Yes, people are pigs.

I walk my road every day and every day there is some more trash thrown out by the pigs. Last week topped everything though. Some slob placed two dead beavers side by side on my road. It was the strangest thing I have seen yet. Somebody took the time to load two beavers they had killed and drove them up to my road just to lay them out side by side on the edge of the road........

Lot of alcoholics driving around drinking and slobs that eat fast food but can't wait to find a trash can to throw out their trash.

I hate people

I'll second that!

I live in an apartment complex and not only do the pigs toss their garbage on the grounds but they will throw their loose and bagged garbage BESIDE the dumpster rather than putting it IN the damn dumpster.

The cig butts everywhere are beyond disgusting as they are not biodegradable and litter the sidewalks and flower beds.

We are moving when our lease is up.

When I was a kid in the 60s there was a jingle ad on TV about littering? Anyone remember it?

"Please, please don't be a litter bug..." (can't remember the rest of the words)

Littering in some areas is a finable offense.

Evidently it's rarely enforced.

I live in NE GA and it's really bad here, my little dirt road is always filled with empties and fast food stuff, we also get plenty of dogs dumped year round.

That's what hurts me the most- dumped animals. I am at capacity right now and I end up doing what the pigs should have done- taking them to the animal control shelter. It kills me every time I have to do it but it is a far better way to die than getting attacked by a pack of coyotes, getting hit by a car or starving to death. At least they have a slight chance of getting adopted.

Tell that to Arlo Guthrie.

Truthfully it would be enforced except for the fact that one would need to witness it. (the act)
