Mugger Makes off with Dog Poop

The heist went off poorly. Or exceedingly well, I suppose, depending on what the mugger was after:

An unknown man approached a 62-year-old woman as she was walking her dog just before 10 a.m. on the 100 block of Dakota. The man demanded the woman she give him everything she had, and he said that if she didn't, he would kick her dog.

The woman handed him a bag and the suspect fled. Unbeknownst to the suspect, the bag she gave him contained her dog's feces.

That is certainly a well known UL (no, really, it happened to a friend of a friend of mine) Sometimes the unwanted stolen item is the dead body of a pet, often it is bodily waste of some kind.

I think you would find it goes back way before the 1970s. Read Jan Harold Brunvand. He traces the similar "stolen specimen" story (urine in a bottle stolen by thieves) back to the 1930s and relates it to earlier stories.

of course, sometimes the events in ULs actually happen.
