One of the mysteries of the English language finally explained.
An implement for clearing up dog excrement.
- ‘‘The dogs are soiling the place - they are being let loose in the cemetery and the people don't use the pooper scoopers that are available, ‘said a cemetery committee spokeswoman.’’
- ‘Either they're reasonable residents doing some helpful work for the team, or (as has been the case at times), you spend the whole day running after them with a shovel and a pooper scooper.’
- ‘‘And, Carol,’ he added as I was leaving, ‘don't forget when you go out walking to take along a plastic bag as well as a poop scoop.’
- ‘A new undercover poop scoop team will be out to catch irresponsible early-morning dog walkers who fail to clean up after their canine friends.’
- ‘Does this mean that dogs will have to be kept on leads on Woodstown beach and that their owners will be fined if they do not bring their pooper scooper with them and use it whenever their mutt soils the beach?’
- ‘The litter bins around the park are not specifically for dog waste, but people can still use them to put their poop scoop bags in.’
- ‘Perhaps you didn't have a poop scoop on you at the time, never mind I cleaned it up for you.’
- ‘Well, let's face it, you cannot go for a walk on the beach, do some shopping, cruise the local beauty spots and have a pint with a pooper scooper in your purse or your back pocket.’
- ‘‘Anyone with a dog licence will get a packet of pooper scooper bags in the post,’ he says after another resident mentions it as a favourite bugbear.’
- ‘Looks like a lot of fun, as long as you're not on the pooper scooper squad.’
