What do you think the penalty should be for people who don’t pick up after their dogs on the local trails?

Doreen Dunlop, Basalt

I think there should be fines for those who totally ignore the rules, but there wouldn’t be nearly as much problem with the trails in Aspen if they’d do what Basalt does ” provide a place to put it.

Maybe someone should leave dog poop in their yard for a week.

I think you guys should leave this issue alone and let the park ranger pick it up. What did we hire him for? Maybe he should be happy to have a job.

They should have to spend a full day on Smuggler walking up and down, picking up dog poop.

Kat Pitner, Aspen

Maybe that person should get a day of community service, picking up dog poop on trails.
