A new superhero has emerged in the Czech Republic – to wage war on dog owners who don’t clear up their pets’ mess.
The caped crusader – complete with tights, helmet and a mask to protect his secret identity – patrols the parks of Prague.
The self-styled super hero – who also soaks inconsiderate smokers with buckets of water – says he was spurred into action after the city was dubbed the dog poo capital of Europe.
“I am SuperVaclav, and I have decided to take action against the indifference and hypocrisy in society,” he said on his website.
“I’m tired of just sitting back and watching the injustice around us. It is my mission.”
One video for his campaign – posted on YouTube and his own website – show him snatching up a handful of dog poo from the ground and pelting the dog’s owner with it.
“His only super power seems to be running pretty fast because the dog owner is furious and sprints after him as if he means to kill him,” said one observer.
