San Francisco residents reported more than 30,000 cases of poop to authorities in 2019, city records show.
As of Monday afternoon, the city’s Department of Public Works responded to 30,136 cases of “human or animal waste” this year, easily topping the 28,353 cases the agency handled in 2018 with a week still to go, according to a Daily Caller News Foundation analysis of publicly available city records. The liberal city is averaging more than 84 poop reports every day, The Daily Caller News Foundation’s analysis found.
