DNA Poop Testing Holds Negligent Dog Owners Responsible

We all know that cleaning up your dog's poop after he defecates is  the responsible thing to do. Unfortunately, many pet parents fail to do so.

 Today, in an article from PSI's Weekly News Brief written by Emily Mieure of WDRB.com,, I read how one apartment complex in Louisville Kentucky has figured out how to hold negligent dog owners responsible.

Here's how it works. All of the tenants who move into this particular complex who own dogs, must agree to a cheek swab of their dog for DNA testing. These swaps are sent to   a company called Poo Prints of Louisville that houses a lab where the swaps are  analyzed for its DNA and entered into a database.  When the complex maintenance people find a pile of feces left on the lawns, they take a sample and send it off to the lab where DNA testing is done and the guilty dog and owner are identified. 
The Management of the complex then confronts the tenant ( dog owner) with the empirical evidence and fines them $250.00 for failing to clean ip after their pet.

I would imagine this is a pretty effective way to keep the laws and property clear of dog poop at this particular complex. Love the idea. Wish we could do it all over the country.
