Thanet Girl fights dog poo

At the front of the group shot below is "Thanet Girl," an 'eco superhero' who patrols the streets of Thanet teaching kids about the importance of picking up dog poo. Her cry to arms is, "There is no such thing as the Dog Poo Fairy."

She's aided in her efforts by the FIDO machine, which is some kind of robot dog that rolls around Thanet sucking up what dogs leave behind. Link:

This sounds more like something out of Japan.

No, Patty, we're on about something out of dogs. 🙄

I tend to look where I'm placing my feet while walking. That helps keep dog poo off my shoes.

They have a ways to go to beat out Paris, where, until 2002, they used a fleet of "motocrottes" to vacuum the dog poo off the sidewalk.
