Poop in pet store leads to lawsuit

The USA Today yesterday reported a Virginia man is suing mega pet chain PetSmart for $1 million after slipping in dog feces at their store in Newport News, Va.

Robert Holloway alleges that the retailer and its employees "negligently allowed animals to enter the premises and deposit feces in such a manner as to create a dangerous and hazardous condition" and that it should’ve been cleaned up. His suit claims that he slipped during the incident last year, injuring his back and knocking out four teeth. He was 69 at the time, according to the Virginian-Pilot.

A judge dismissed a suit brought in 2008 by a woman who said she slipped in urine and injured her knee at the same PetSmart location.
