Letters: Discarded bags of dog poop proliferating near trails

We have been increasingly distressed by the many, many bags of dog feces neatly bagged and thrown on the mining school road and on out the trails and presumably all over Rossland.  The bears are hungry now and dog feces are rich in nutrients, and ugly as this photo is, people need to know that they are threatening the lives of bears who can die from ingesting plastic bags which can block their intestines.  There are two white dog poop bags (NOT as biodegradable as one would expect, by the way) in this pile of apple-loaded bear poop.
