The hashtag reads #nomascacas. And Spanish fluency is hardly required for an accurate translation.

The town of Torreldones in Spain has taken a whimsical approach in encouraging its dog-owning citizens to do the neighborly thing and clean up after their pooches, installing a giant inflatable poop to get the message across.

Angel Guiraos, town council spokesman of this Spanish city of 22,000, told The Local that Torrelodones has about 6,000 dogs who can produce about 1,100 pounds of excrement every day.

“That is more or less what this inflatable represents, the amount of poo left on the streets across the town each day,” Guiraos said. “We are asking dog owners, in a fun, non-aggressive way, to realize the importance of clearing up after their pets.”

Residents in the town are being encouraged to take selfies alongside the prodigious poop (it’s roughly 10 feet wide and more than six-and-a-half feet tall) and post it on social media with the hashtag #nomascacas – No more poops.

  1. There was a really STUPID comment moment ago from a real ignorant person who thinks it is overshadowing the problem of animal cruelty etc. It’s apples and oranges dumb-ass. Maybe this particular town doesn’t have a problem with animal cruelty, just people who can’t or simply don’t clean up after their dogs. Perhaps they could/should dump 3 tons (6000 lbs) of dog crap at your front door if you think it’s not a problem.

    • I thought it was a good comment. Yes of course it would be nice if people cleaned up after themselves and their pets but would be good to see that kind of commitment to education about animal welfare to prevent neglect & suffering, which is much more serious an issue. In any case, if you disagree with someone’s comment just say so. No need to start throwing around insults & call them names. It only makes you look petulant & lessens the credibility of your argument..
