Fighting For A Turd Free Toulouse

"C’est beaucoup trop!", said the Mairie de Toulouse, after it was reported that five tonnes of dog faeces are dropped on the streets, pavements & parks of Toulouse every day, of every week, of every year.

Five tonnes is, by any measure, a sizable quantity of turd.

Take a minute. Sit back. Visualise it. F-i-v-e t-o-n-n-e-s!

While the figure itself is unsurprising - France is filthy after all - I am more than curious to know who did the counting.

The Mairie has produced a great Wallace & Grommitesque "It's raining turds" video to promote the campaign to clean up Toulouse.

It started airing in French cinemas and on the France 3 Sud channel this week.

Dog fouling is truly a worldwide problem.

There are many streets, where this would be a just response to the circumstances.

That said, if it affected me, it would be wrong and, therefore, we must do all we can to eliminate this proliferation of filth!

A MALT LOAF is just the right size and colour to sculpt a convincing pair of decent-sized dog turds. Don't forget to taper one end.

Thanks for that. Can you advise us regarding what we would do with the end product?
