Just for freakish fun....?!  As the director of a farmers market too, I'm now tracking on all those other imaginative possibilities! (gak!)

Woman Accused of Spreading Dog Feces

PORTLAND, Maine - A Portland woman accused of spreading dog feces at

Deering Oaks Park as part of a vendetta against its weekly farmer's

market has been banned from the park and charged with criminal mischief.

Lora Leland, 53, was caught early Saturday emptying 16 bags of dog feces

in the road that winds through the center of the park, police said. She

explained that she was angry at the Saturday morning farmer's market

because it interfered with her ability to ride her bicycle through the

park, police said.

Farmers who arrived to the mess every Saturday for the better part of

two summers were elated at the news of the arrest.

"When the farmers came in to set up, they just had to clean up the whole

road," said officer Dan Knight, who staked out the park with a fellow

officer Friday night into Saturday in an effort to apprehend the culprit.

At 3:30 a.m. Saturday, the officers spotted a woman walking a miniature

German shepherd down the middle of the park's interior road. The woman

was reaching into a large plastic shopping bag, removing smaller bags

which she would open and then dump the contents onto the roadway, Knight


Confronted by the officers, Leland said she was angry at the farmer's


"She told us that she doesn't like that they take up that whole road

because she can't ride her bike there," Knight said.

The woman said she would collect the small baggies with dog feces from

city garbage cans over the course of the preceding week as well as

stockpile it from her own dog, then spread it to disrupt the market,

police said.

"There was some old stuff, like it's been in the trash for a while and a

fair amount of fresh stuff," Knight said. "Sixteen bags in all."

Leland, who could not be reached for comment, faces a misdemeanor charge

of criminal mischief and has been served a criminal trespass order

barring her from the park for a year. If found guilty, she faces up to a

year in jail, though authorities say a fine is more likely.

Hi there, just make certain there are plenty of refuse containers, baggies, and if the garden wishes, a sign welcoming visitors without their dogs. I think dog owners (I'm biased of course) should be welcome to share in the varied good uses of open greenspaces.
