A New York woman who says a family trip to Connecticut was ruined when her child stepped in dog feces has filed a claim against the city they were visiting.  Kelly DeBrocky says that she and her family were planning to visit the Norwalk Aquarium on April 5, but that the trip was derailed when her 1-year-old took the fateful step.  Apparently believing the dog was employed and/or encouraged by the city to create the nuisance, DeBrocky is demanding $100 in compensation for the costs of parking, admission, and replacement baby shoes.

Norwalk’s city attorney, Jeffry Spahr, said that the claim had been denied, and nicely summarized the city’s legal defense.  "Poop happens," he said.
