LOUISVILLE, Ky., (UPI) — The company that manages the Big Four Bridge walkway between Louisville, Ky., and Jeffersonville, Ind., is calling on dog owners to sign a poop-scooping pledge.

The Waterfront Development Corp., which also manages the Waterfront Park in Louisville, said pet owners will have an opportunity during a rally Sunday at the entrance ramp on the Kentucky side of the bridge to sign forms pledging to clean up their pets’ droppings, The (Louisville) Courier-Journal reported Thursday.

Officials said the rally, from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m., is intended to promote responsible pet ownership and will serve to inform dog owners that pet droppings on the walkway will be monitored during the coming weeks. They said steps — including a potential ban on dogs on the walkway — may be taken if droppings prove to be a problem.

The local humane society and the animal services department — which drew up the pledges that animal owners will be given to sign — have put their support behind the initiative.

Dog owners who sign the pledge will get free T-shirts, officials said.
