Signs against wild pissers, memorials against illegal waste disposal, works of art or just a joke after a night of drinking – why was it placed there? And why was it gone again by the end of the week?

Only those who tied the object with a rope to the tree near a busy road between Horb and Freudenstadt can say with certainty.

The urinal was discovered three weeks ago by local historian Heinrich Raible. He doesn’t rule out that originally it was just going to be dumped in the parking lot.

“The place is known as a dumping ground, there’s a lot of illegal dumping going on there,” he said when asked. The parking lot is also used as a pee spot.

Raible photographed the curious object and made it a local celebrity. Newspapers and the SWR reported and the urinal was also a topic in letters to the editor.
