Abstract (en)

Device for the collection of animal excrements, and in particular of dog excrements. Such device consists of a box-shaped element made of biodegradable material, preferably obtained from a cardboard blank suitably shaped and assembled, consisting of four side walls (1, 4, 202, 301) connected to an upper wall (2). The bottom surface (3) of the box-shaped element is open and co-operating with a shutter-shaped element (5), sliding from a position in which the box bottom is open, so as to allow the box to be put on the excrement (10) to be removed, to a position in which such bottom is closed, so as to seize the excrement (10) within the box itself, thus allowing its removal from the ground (9). <IMAGE>
