Dog DNA

A manager of a housing complex in Lebanon is annoyed that her tenants aren’t cleaning up after their dogs. Her solution? DNA test the dogs, to definitively prove who’s pooch is the one causing problems:

So manager Debbie Violette is going to use commercially available DNA sampling kits to check the DNA of dog leavings.

She says residents are being told Friday they must submit samples from their dogs so DNA profiles can be put on file.

Violette says she hasn’t decided what to do if she catches a pet owner not cleaning up after their dog. But they’ll probably be fined.

Interesting way to solve the problem, although I suspect that banning pets at the complex would also do the same thing. Or you know, responsible ownership.

Thanks to Jen for the tip.
