Title: Pickup device for animal waste

Abstract: The invention discloses a device for picking up animal waste. The device is an elongated outer tubular handle having an interior manipulator therein. At end of the outer handle there is located a hollow tubular casing. At an outer end of the inner manipulator is located a handle and at the other end there is separably located a claw or a cross made of stiff but flexible material. The claw has four arms. The circumference of the claw is substantially larger than an inner diameter of the hollow tubular casing. Thereby, when the claw is pulled inwardly of the hollow tubular casing, the claws will collapse within the hollow tubular casing. Thereby, any animal waste can by picked up and deposited in a convenient location. Before picking up the waste, a piece of paper or bag is placed within the claw. This results in that no waste is exposed to any elements of the pick-up device including the arms of the claw.
