Why ever do we go through all this, you should forgive the pun, crap? If you simply pooped on the ground and left your trophy sitting there proudly, and no one ever came along again — no humans, no animals, no insects — and if it never rained, there would likely be no problem. But that’s not life on this Earth. Feces is a wonderful thing on which to harbor living, thriving colonies of bacteria. Bad bacteria. Turds in the woods are like magnetic toys to animals such as beaver, bear, squirrel, mouse, chipmunk and even young children. Put these two elements together and you have the optimum transport system to spread bacteria around the woods, into the water and to other animals.
