   (b)   No person being the owner or having charge of any animal on any public or private property other than the property of the owner or person having charge of such animal, shall fail to have in his possession a wooden, plastic or metal device, bag, wrapper or container for the purpose of picking up and properly disposing of any fecal matter left by such animal.  Failure of any such person to have in his possession such suitable device or container is prima-facie evidence of a violation of this section.
