Aimee Parsons articulated the bottom-line sentiment of many of her fellow residents regarding a rather disgusting problem they share.
"This is our neighborhood," she told KPRC-TV in Houston. "Whatever people might think should go on around here, pooping is not OK."
Parsons isn't referring to what dogs leave behind. In the Woodland Heights area, a man is reportedly doing his business on sidewalks and in yards. He's apparently targeted one home six times, as well as others.

"We don't want dogs pooping in our yards," Parsons added. "Why would we want a human? It is very strange."
One fed-up neighbor installed a surveillance camera in a tree and actually recorded images of a man appearing to defecate on a sidewalk — and leaving behind pieces of paper towel he apparently employed for wiping.
"It's definitely not a nice thing to do to people," Patrick Reese, who lives nearby, told KPRC. "Going to the bathroom in their driveway is not nice. That's definitely not something that's supposed to go on in polite society."
Deputies said they are looking for the suspect — who strikes at night and early in the morning — and could face an indecent exposure or criminal mischief charge.
