NYPD Sh*tting All Over the LES

According to Section 161.03 of the NYC Health Code, “A person who owns, possesses or controls a dog, cat or other animal shall not permit the animal to commit a nuisance on a sidewalk of any public place, on a floor, wall, stairway or roof…” Somehow, this doesn’t apply to NYPD horses patrolling the Lower East Side during the weekend hell that have been leaving big piles of poop all over the neighborhood to the dismay of residents. A police source told the Post that there’s nothing to worry about, the shit is “biodegradable.”
