"This is going to seem like an odd post, but it keeps happening and I can't think of another way to do something about it.
I live on the south end of the 4700 block of Kenmore and I walk my dogs multiple times a day on my street. For the past month or more I've noticed a pattern of someone leaving multiple, large hunks of cooked meat on the bone in the grass in front of 4721-4725 N. Kenmore. They seem to be ribs and t-bones, although I'm not a meat eater so I can't be certain. There are definitely large bones with cooked meat scraps on them.
It seems to me that these have to be coming from someone who lives in the area because they keep ending up in the same place and they are the same kind of food. I don't know if someone thinks they are doing a good thing by leaving treats for neighborhood animals/dogs, but it's disgusting and needs to stop. I'm sure it is attracting all kinds of vermin (rats, raccoons, birds, maggots, etc.) and it's not safe for dogs either. The bones are cooked so they will splinter and puncture any animal that has a strong enough jaw to break them and they sit out there for days rotting."
