Shopping carts in the wild
Used Abused and Abandoned
- Verybecoming, CNN iReport producer
While visiting my home town of Knoxville, Tennessee I wanted to try to locate some 'shopping carts gone wild'.
After riding around for a while in shopping center parking lot's I noticed most carts were treated nicely and had not gone wild.
We knew a creek ran along side and in back of the KMart , so we started following the waterway .Sure enough my sister and I saw several mistreated, abused and abandoned shopping carts or 'Buggies' as we call them in Tennessee. Noticing a walking bridge across the creek for the residence of a Senior Apartment Complex, the carts seemingly were used to carry groceries or merchandise from the KMart back to the complex and then returned as far as the creek and dumped.
