A New York woman has filed a $100 claim against the city of Norwalk, saying her family outing to the Maritime Aquarium was ruined by dog poop. The woman claims her child's shoes, along with the entire outing, were ruined when the 1-year-old stepped in dog feces outside the Maritime Garage.

City attorney M. Jeffry Spahr says the official response is that her claim is denied and in his words, "poop happens."

Kelly DeBrocky of Mahopac, wants the city to reimburse her for $54 she spent replacing her toddler's shoes and the expenses for parking and aquarium admission on April 5.
