Description

The owner of 1 Englewood Place has heavily spread red pepper flakes all over the public sidewalk running the perimeter of their property along both Englewood and State Street. A quick Google search shows that this is a malicious way to keep dogs away and could cause contact burns on their paws, respiratory distress, and gastrointestinal upset (including vomiting and diarrhea), among other things. It can also be potentially life threatening to small children with respiratory issues as they might touch, eat, or inhale, the large amount of pepper flakes spread all over the sidewalk. The community and city should not tolerate this willful, blatant, and malicious behavior. I dislike when pet owners don't clean up after their pets as much as the next person, but this is taking things too far and jeopardizes the health and welfare of all dogs and small children. During these fraught times, it's terrible to have to force parents and dog owners into this situation and more important than ever to come together as a positive community.
