I use bacon grease here in the suburbs all the time. I live on a corner lot
and some of my neighbors, when walking their dogs, let fido do their business
in my yard. After they leave I pour bacon grease on the poop. The next day when they come back old rover helps himself and my yard gets cleaned up
every time. One dude accused me of hanky panky and I told him how well trained his dog was to clean up after himself and he wanted to fight about it. Go figure.
