NEW YORK, June 13 (UPI) -- A woman in New York decided she would clean her dogs rear after it relieved itself during a walk through Central Park by using a water fountain as a bidet.

Emily Leisz Carr decided to shoot the video, while filming a documentary on New Yorker cartoonists, when she witnessed the crime against hygiene. When the Gothamist asked Carr if she was washing the whole dog, she specified that it was "butt oriented."

It took several minutes before the woman was approached by another person who proceeded to chastise her about her practices, yelling, "human people put their faces there."

Carr said the woman responded "Ok" and and said she would "clean it up." She continued grooming her dog for a few more minutes and then came back with a "balled up plastic bag" to briefly wipe the fountain off.

Carr yelled at one thirsty passerby, "No don't drink that!" as he leaned over the fountain. She didn't report warning anyone else of the feces-coated spigot.
