A North Las Vegas woman is dealing with a very stinky situation and inconsiderate neighbors.

Not only are they not cleaning up after their pets, but they are also dumping their waste from the top floor of their apartment building.

It is something that Madonna Arnold never expected to happen right outside her apartment.

She told 13 Action News that she can hear the waste as it falls. And, of course, she can smell it.

Arnold was able to catch the dumping on camera and show it to us.

She says it's not the first time that the people above her have dumped waste off their balcony, just the first time that she has actually caught it on camera.

She says that the waste is ruining her patio and her grill.

The waste is also dripping out of the drainage pipes for the building.

She isn't the only one who is fed up with the situation. So are other people in the building.

Arnold says she has asked the people to stop. However, she was told to mind her own business.

13 Action News didn't have much luck with them either.

Management of the apartment complex say they are aware of the situation and are giving the residents a 5-day notice that they need to clean up and get rid of the dogs, which are a restricted breed that is not allowed in the complex, or they will face eviction.

Arnold told 13 Action News that she is a Navy veteran who fell on hard times and was forced to move from her previous residence.

She just wants her new home to be safe and clean for her family.
