October 12th, 2010 - Tulsa Man Puts Medical School On Hold To Become Poop Guy

    TULSA, Oklahoma -- Everyone who knew Jon Wood growing up was sure he would become a doctor. He graduated from the University of Tulsa with all the prerequisites for med school including a degree in biology. So, what did he do? He started his own business. In Tulsa, Jon Wood is Poop 911.

    Wood started his business a couple of years ago while he was still at the University of Tulsa. "I got my degree in biology with a minor in chemistry," he said. "I have all the prerequisites to go to med school." But the entrepreneurial bug bit him. Now, the kids in his neighborhood call him the poop guy.

    "Yesterday I got a call asking if I'd do their horses and goats," Wood said.No, Wood just sticks to dogs. There may be those who think why bother, it's just fertilizer. Oh, but it's not, he says. "If left unpicked up it will cause brown spots in your grass because it is burning your grass," Wood said. "It's very acidic." That's because of the dog's high protein diet.

    Ben Franklin said once "two things in life are certain, death and taxes." Jon Wood has found another.So for now business is good. He'll think about being a doctor someday, but for now he's happy being the poop guy.

July 17, 2006- Pet Waste Causes Health Concern

    FORT WORTH, Texas -- Pet waste is a health hazard that washes into local rivers and lakes, but the problem is easy to fix.According to the North Texas Council of Governments, area dogs leave behind 450 tons of waste every day.And many pet owners don't clean it up.

    Dog droppings are more than a nasty nuisance -- they are a health hazard. Rainwater washes pet waste into storm drains."Pet waste contains bacteria, viruses and parasites. And these pathogens can cause diseases," said Sophia Harvey of Dallas Public Works. The untreated waste then washes into rivers and lakes. The Texas Commission On Environmental quality studied the problem at Town Lake in Austin and found that dogs left A half-million pounds of waste in the watershed annually. Harvey said the majority of potentially harmful fecal coli-form bacteria in local waterways is from pet waste.

    Unlike so many environmental issues, fixing the pet waste problem is easy. Pet owners should collect waste in plastic bags. For those who are too busy or squeamish, some businesses are dedicated to picking up waste."We dispose of it in plastic bags," said Geoffrey Bodle of Hound Mounds said. "We go out to the landfill in Lewisville." Even though pet waste washes into reservoirs, there is no problem with drinking water. It is treated and completely safe.
