TORRELODONES, Spain, June 9 (UPI) -- A giant inflatable poop meant to deter dog owners from leaving their dogs' excrement in the street was stolen from the center of a Spanish town.
The Torrelodones town hall shared a Facebook post stating that the giant inflatable poop that was located near the town hall area had been stolen.
"The awareness campaign launched by the city of Torrelodones in order to ensure that the neighbors pick up dog excrement has reached its greatest success when, last weekend, the inflatable that represented a giant poop has been 'cleaned up,'" they wrote.
Several poo sculptures were placed in multiple locations in and around the town with signs encouraging residents to clean up their pets excrement and promote the campaign by sharing pictures of themselves with the poop using the hashtag #nomascacas.
The town officials said that they will not allow the theft to deter the continuation of the campaign and plan to replace the inflatable poop.
"Despite this disappearance we will restart the campaign next week once the company that designed the inflatable provides a new one," they wrote.
