    Berlin's dogs are being poisoned by the feces of drug addicts, according to a report from Germany's Tagesspiegel newspaper. Veterinarians tell the paper they've seen increased poisoning cases involving dogs that had eaten human waste, with many suffering from shaking, dehydration, and an inability to walk properly. Subsequent tests revealed that heroin and other illegal drugs were still present in the consumed feces.

    Doctors say most of the dogs ate the feces in the city's Treptow and Kreuzberg areas, where drug users are known to gather —and occasionally defecate — in public parks. Drug use has been especially pervasive in Kreuzberg's Görlitzer Park, where some activists are pushing the government to combat the issue by legalizing and regulating marijuana. Fatal Cases are rare.

    Berlin-based veterinarian Reinhold Sassnau tells Tagesspiegel that most of the overdose cases he sees come during his night shift, though they're rarely fatal. If a dog receives quick medical attention, it can be treated with an enema that forces it to vomit the drug-laced feces; otherwise, it may be forced to undergo prolonged treatment at a clinic. In the meantime, experts are urging dog owners to train their animals to not eat human poop.

    I think I cracked my skull open. My face hit the desk that hard.

    *headdesk*

    Well, I am amazed. A heroin user was actually able to take a poop. I know that opiates never treat me right with that sort thing. :|

    There are no public bathrooms or porta-potties in German Parks?

    ^ considering the valid point made by SR above, I would question the claim that heroin addicts are the culprits of the dog issues. Perhaps the poor sanatary accommodations provided in these Parks has led to something else like canine circovirus

    Perhaps, German authorities should stop questioning who is shitting in the park, and turn their attention to PROVIDING A GODDAMN BATHROOM.

    There should be no reason to do something stupid like "training a dog not to eat human poop".. it would be accepting that its ok to have people shitting on the ground..

    How do you train a dog to not eat poop by species?

    I would guess it would require shitting in your own yard or having others shit in your yard to provide the repetitive treat vs punishment system that is required in dog training. Stupid!

    That's all I got :)

    Now all we need is someone to come up with a good extraction TEK. :)

    Poor dogs, sounds horrible.

    Dogs resort to eating poop for a variety of reasons, including they aren’t absorbing enough nutrients, they have parasites, they have pancreatic problems, they've had their noses RUBBED in poop as pups, AND (BINGO!) they don't get enough good food to eat!

    Maybe, just maybe, it's time for the Poop Police to take charge on all levels in Germany. Put up bathrooms for the people (fine them when they're caught pooping in public) and take better care of their pups.

    If anyone ever comes up with a poop extraction TEK, I will never do drugs again. Ever. By gawd, I will join the DEA. lol

    I wonder if the dog enema would work as a partial cwe.. and the dog vomit the begennings of an a/b.

    :p

    Some brightspark (idiot) might be able to combine this news articles revelations with the thread on Jenkem and produce the worlds most offensive drug* http://www.drugs-forum.com/forum/showthread.php?t=224286&highlight=jenkem


    *jenkem is not a drug, it is a drug myth and should only be considered by people who want to get on 'The List'*

    *Read the linked thread for information on the list

    As for having public toilets, i'm sure they probably do, although maybe not quite enough.
    I know in Dublin that the majority of ours, if not all were closed down years ago because they were attracting Drug Addicts, Muggers, Cottagers etc.
    There were a few pay toilets installed, but i would imagine most homeless addicts would rather crap down an alley way, as they do here.

    IAN, huffington post published a story this week that has an "expose" on jenkem.. I can't bring myself to post it.. bad information combined with. Huff'as anti-copy code that mashes words together randomly.

    Anyone can feel free to post away

    To me a story about canine fears overdose is much more worthwhile

    Why not just train your dog not to eat poop in general? ;)
