Another Errant Poo Found in Ft. Barnard Park

For at least the third time in a month, someone has dropped a very public deuce at Ft. Barnard Park.

The feces was found on woodchips in the park’s playground area this morning. It was partially covered with a shirt.

“Staff found human waste covered with a shirt at Ft. Barnard Park today,” confirmed Arlington Dept. of Parks and Recreation spokeswoman Susan Kalish. “This is the first time we’ve noticed it since the last incidence mentioned in the media. We have stepped up patrols with police and park rangers but have not been able to determine the culprit.”

Each subsequent defecation has prompted a clean-up job by county workers. The park is a particularly popular spot for children and their caretakers.
