"Random dog droppings in yard: Tonight I recently solved the mystery of the random dog droppings throughout our side yard.
They belong to what seems to be a stray dog. I caught it lingering around our yard and driveway tonight and it will not leave.
I watched it mark its territory 7 times in my yard and do number 2 as well. It has no collar on it.
I got some pictures of it and when I got close to it, it got real nasty"

This is an area that random dog droppings have been reported complained about for years .

If any one has info on the mystery canine please let us know .
