When you throw items over the edge of the bypass it ends up on a tax payer's property resulting in that tax payer~your fellow community member having to clean up the mess and dispose of the items properly.
Most recently there has been stripped deer and fileted salmon or halibut carcasses thrown over the railing of the bypass, it stinks up the area of rotting meat/fish.
Some pet owners like to walk their dogs along the 3rd Ave. wall. It is incredibly disgusting to find your pet with a stripped deer head, leg, spine or fish skeleton in its mouth. If the pet has eaten enough of the remains the end results is the owner having to pick up dog vomit or diarrhea. I realize it is natural for a dog to be attracted to such things in the wild but dumping is not natural.
