CORVALLIS, Ore. (AP) — Orange poop is hard to miss -- and that's the point. Volunteers spent part of their weekend picking up piles of poo along the trails in Oregon's McDonald Forest. About a-half ton of doogie doo-doo was scooped up. The poop had been painted orange to make it easier to spot. It's part of an effort from the Oregon State University College of Forestry and local veterinarians, to draw attention to the amount of doggie droppings on hiking trails. Ryan Brown of OSU tells the Corvallis Gazette-Times that dog owners need to do a better of cleaning up after their four-legged buddies.
