Few (French) people pick up after their dogs, especially if they live in an apartment and just let their dogs out.  They would not know where to find it. Paris has hefty fines if they catch you not picking it up. However, where the second photo was taken (Carpentras) they have come up with another way to handle it. I think its quite good, as it seems to be the ony way to get rid of it.

    I saw these machines when I was in Paris to watch a France v Scotland rugby game in the late eighties. They used to come around in the early morning. Hadn’t seen them on subsequent trips to France. I thought they had fallen out of favour for some reason, although they seemed to be a good idea, given that the French are rather casual about their dog mess.

    Rather casual?!?!? Ummm, well I guess if you were feeling terribly kind you might say that …..
