If a police horse defecates on the road, who is responsible for cleaning up the mess? The Toronto Police Services went above and beyond their call of duty Friday afternoon, answering questions about it on Twitter.

The discussion was apparently started by Toronto-based author and journalist Shawn Micallef, who wanted to know if the "poop and scoop" rule applies to police horses in the city. The discussion piled on from there, and soon caught the attention of those on Twitter – likely because the police were using the hashtag "#poopchat."

The police later admitted their use of the hashtag “#poopchat” was probably the “WorstHashtagEVER.”
