Video: Denver's No. 2 priority (spying on humans)Submitted by MMJ Ministry on Sat, 03/21/2009 - 00:33
KUSA - If you saw her here, you might not give her a second thought. That's because Amanda Jeter is relaxing, reading, walking; doing the things everyone else does while at a park. But Jeter puts a lot of thought into looking like she's just another visitor.
"Sometimes you try to look like you're doing something so you don't feel so creepy," Jeter said.
Jeter is not your average park-goer. She's trying to sneak a peak at the very thing some people may be trying to avoid. She's watching for your reaction, or lack thereof, to your pet's poop.
"It has been an interesting experience," she said, "sometimes it takes a lot of patience. We've seen three poops in an hour, that's good," she said.
Jeter is spying on humans and animals, trying to track a behavior that affects us all.
"Oh, that dog owner didn't pick up their dog poo," she noted.
Her efforts are a part of a study sanctioned and paid for by the city of Denver.
