Dog waste, like human waste, contains harmful bacteria and organisms that can spread disease. Children are particularly vulnerable to these harmful organisms, which can cause stomach illnesses and rashes in humans. Some people believe it's OK to let dog waste "bio-degrade as nature intended." However, biodegradation is a slow process. With the large number of dogs using parks, waste accumulates faster than it degrades.
