Taiyuan installs some truly shitty ‘public toilets’ for dogs
Unsurprisingly, doggos are not down for being forced into a small, metal cage to poop
Hoping to clean up the streets a bit, the Shanxi capital of Taiyuan has recently introduced a couple of “public toilets” for dogs, which have been criticized for being really quite shit.
The doggie toilets are essentially steel cages with a metal bar floor allowing canine excrement to drop to a litter box below. Sanitation officials promised to clean the toilets daily. They reportedly cost the city 2,000 yuan.
However, unsurprisingly, most dogs have been more than a little reluctant to go inside the cramped metal cages, much less do their business inside.
Admittedly, these shoddy facilities are a bit surprising considering the incredible creativity that China has shown in creating and updating public restrooms for humans. A worker in charge of the project told reporters that the city will work to continue to work to improve public toilets for man’s best friend.
