Dog owners have to get a clue about using the Boise Foothills.
Trail workers are finding 350 pounds of dog poop a week and dogs are running loose and not under control.
Before you know it, some trails will be closed to dogs.
There's a meeting to discuss dog problems on the 126 miles of Ridge to Rivers Trails in the Foothills from 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesday on the third floor of Boise City Hall, 150 N. Capitol Blvd.
Interested dog owners should attend.
There's a simple solution to the dog mess problem. Owners should just pick up after their dogs. It's that simple. However, enough garbage cans need to be placed at good locations on trails to take care of the poop bags, and the garbage cans need to be emptied with regularity.
Let's hope this mess gets under control. The Foothills are a fun place to dogs and their owners.
