What a shame, throwing away food

You dumped about 100 pounds of food along the hydro path that runs between 128 Street and 132 Street.

Yesterday I once again cleaned up your mess.

You dumped about 100 pounds of food along the hydro path that runs between 128 Street and 132 Street.

What a mess it was, too.

For some reason, you disposed of raw chicken, frozen appetizers, breaded chicken breasts, chicken nuggets, shrimp rings, quiches, salami and more.  I can only assume that your freezer failed and the food had spoiled.

That should be the only reason to dispose of at least $200 worth of food.

I wonder why you decided to haul this heavy load out to the hydro lines in the dark of night to get rid of it.

What is wrong with your garbage can?

By the time I found your mess, the animals had already been at it, spreading it everywhere.

The area where you dumped this is enjoyed by dog walkers, cyclists, joggers and people out for a leisurely walk.

It really makes a walk hard to enjoy with smelly, rotting food lying about, especially when you are trying to walk a dog past the aroma.

My dog managed to gobble down several chicken nuggets before I could stop him.

It’s fortunate that he didn’t get sick.

You really should be ashamed of yourself.
