A Barrington woman who grew tired of her neighbor’s cat defecating on her property was issued a summons for illegal dumping after she was caught throwing the cat feces into the roadway, said local police.
Barrington police received a phone call on Monday, March 24 at about 6:44 p.m. from a man who said he saw his neighbor “again” throwing cat “excrement” in the road on Wright Place.
An officer responded to scene and spoke with the individuals involved.
The suspect, Colleen Nolan, reportedly told police that her neighbor’s cat had been defecating all over her property on repeated occasions. She reportedly grew tired of the recurring problem, said police, and began throwing the feces and some dirt in the roadway. Wright Place is a short, dead-end road in Hampden Meadows.
The complainant told police that he offered to clean up after his cat, but that Ms. Nolan refused the offer.
Police said Ms. Nolan tried to clean up some of the feces off the roadway. Officers later issued her a summons for illegal dumping.
