Something is being done about the irresponsible dog owners in some areas. For example, New Hampshire. This post in CNN caught my eye.
Some apartments are implementing PooPrints, a program that matches dog waste to DNA collected through pets' mandatory mouth swabs.
"The tests bought through PooPrints, a subsidiary of BioPet Vet Lab in Knoxville, Tennessee, match the DNA already captured to a sample of each pet's waste. Poop that isn't scooped can then be analyzed."
I wonder who gets the outdoor in the fresh air job of doing the scooping. I wonder if that is a full time job or just part time. Sounds like something we senior citizens could do part time. I wonder if they pay under the table. I'll have to get the scoop on that. This could be another way to help the economy with more new jobs.
Stay tuned for updates on the DNA tests that provide the poop on bad dog owners.
