DNA tracks down crappy dog owners

CONWAY, Mass (Reuters) – Some pet owners who failed to clean up after their dogs got a nasty surprise from apartment complex manager Deb Logan.

Using DNA evidence, Logan started fining the irresponsible dog owners $100 per offense.

Logan, property manager at Twin Ponds in Nashua, New Hampshire, started using a dog DNA-testing system to reveal which pooches were leaving feces scattered about outside.

Logan says the DNA technology called “PooPrints”, developed by BioPet Vet Labs of Knoxville, Tennessee, is working “amazingly” well for Twin Ponds, a 339-unit complex that is home to about 241 dogs.

Right. What if your dog sneaks out of the house and drops some poop? Are you supposed to pick up all the poop you see so you don’t get fined?

What’s next? Urine DNA analysis to see who dribbled on the toilet seat?

Also, who thinks up a business that analyzes dog poop?
