the horror!

it was a seasoning of mass destruction!

Charges and punishments are way out of proportion to the crimes committed in this country. You'd think there was a profit involved or something.

First, they come for the cayene, banning it. Before you know it, high-Scoville capacity habeneros and Scotch Bonnets used by everyday cooks like you and me will be banned, leading to an America dominated by bland vegan cooking; just like the lefties have been planning.

I use that on the other side of my fence to keep the neighbor dogs at bay.Works for a couple months each time.
When i lived in Texas, they moved the community mailbox to the corner of my yard, the neighbors used it as an excuse to walk their dogs and let them poop there. I went as far as telling some of the neighbors, they just ignored me, until I used a rather liberal dose of cayenne in the yard. Then when they'd walk their mutts, they'd happily run into the yard, and got wind of the cayenne. By then, for some, it had already gotten in to their fur, causing whining and scratching. The befuddled owners didn't know what was going on. Even hen they were confused when I'd place the dog droppings on their cars, even on the windshield wiper blades. Oh, and don't forget their porches, leaving for work in the morning, and stepping in it. That's one reason why I bought a house with a bigger yard, for my dog, not yours.
Also, if you keep cayenne if your glove box, helps to alleviate pain if you get a cut, it doesn't burn, just overloads the pain receptors.

Dog droppings in your yard bother you so much that you'd physically handle them long enough to transport them?

Obviously I can see not liking them but if they bothered you that much on the ground, didn't it make it worse to handle them? I mean, if you can take handling them, why couldn't you take them on the ground?

Why not just make it clear that you'd get the police involved? Take pictures as evidence or something? Surely there are laws that could have been enforced and you wouldn't have to have such a "hands=on" approach?

The pepper is a great idea except if a friend who has a dog comes over. Or one with kids maybe.

I had a Dr. Pepper recently and it was delicious! I hadn't had one in years.

At least with rock salt. Certainly at least threat of it would have made most owners who care about their dogs take 'em elsewhere.

I suppose laws vary by county and such, but I can't imagine it's illegal to protect your property with non-lethal means too many places. Especially if warnings are issued and posted.

I personally would not shoot a dog with anything but I might say I would, and act a little crazed on top of it, to encourage alternative locations.

Dogs? They never knew any better. I'm advocating shooting the owners.

I hear that if you dump bacon grease on the offending poo, the returning dog will immediately scarf it down, throwing it up on the owner's carpet later.

I agree that it's a problem, but I think it's less about profit and more about charging someone with the absolute worst thing they can dream up so that it gives them leverage in a plea deal before a trial.

They charge him with this crap so that he agrees to plea to basic assault charges. If they charged him with assault they'd wind up only getting him to plea to disorderly conduct or something similar.

It's still a farked up system.

A facefull of cayenne is nothing to sneeze at.

Seriously, though, powdered cayenne in the eyes or respiratory tract is pretty rough. They guy will plead out to something much smaller and I hope he will be deterred from doing anything like this again.

Which it does by...burning.

A doctor friend participated in the research that led to Capzaicin cream, among other things. He said they injected rabbits with pure capsaicin, and they would writhe and scream in agony for about 8 hours, then stop. They were tested afterwards, and were found to be completely and forever afterwards insensate to pain. The stuff caused their brains to say "Fark this", and completely shut down the nerve pathways that transmitted pain.
