Animals And Their Dropping!

Unlike other bodily processes, “pooping” is rarely written about or discussed, except some discrete mentions in funny anecdotes. However, the reality is that all humans and animals both poop; while humans use a set-up called as the toilet, animals follow natural instincts and use the great wilderness. While human excreta ends up in sewages, animal poop seems to simply vanish off the earth.

Where Does All The Poop Go?

Why is it necessary to treat sewage or waste water? Untreated waste water can have an adverse effect on the environment.
