Skip to comments.Now An Apartment Complex in Texas is DNA Testing Dog Poop
Posted on 01/23/2013 2:31:05 PM PST by Gefn
I often see canine leavings at the side of the road, and wonder which of my fellow dog owners left them behind. (It certainly isnt the dogs fault.) In recent years, homeowners associations and apartment complexes have answered this important question by requiring DNA samples from dogs living on the property. When staff find an abandoned pile, they match the DNA it contains to a resident dog, and fine the owner $250.

Move to some place where you can shoot errant dogs on your property (or celebrate the free fertilizer - have you checked the price of dog food these days?)
Yeah, that makes sense . . . making this issue part of the eternal struggle between fascism and communism.
I think this is great! I lived, for years, in a complex that allowed pets. The policy (and not to mention - good neighborly action) of cleaning up after your pet was well known and communicated not only in the lease, but also monthly in print. The number of people that just didn’t give a crap about their neighbors, or the fact that other people walked through common grassy areas, was staggering. It really ticked me off to step in a pile of crap when stretching for a run. CLEAN UP AFTER YOUR PETS!!!
You're too kind. I'd rub their nose in it...the owner, not the dog.
You can’t really dust for vomit. < /spinal tap >
It sure beats the old method of comparing striations on the turd with artifacts on the sphincter.
SINA knows the answer.

I love it. Do you think a bikini on a cow would be udderly ridiculous?
I have about 5 pounds per week that I am willing to sell and ship to whoever needs some dog poo that can be submitted to your HOA as "your dog's poo."
As part of our agreement, I will promise never to let my dog defecate in your neighborhood.
$5.00/pile + a nominal fee of $45.00 for shipping, handling, and hermetically sealed packaging.
Credit cards accepted.
Doesn’t a Progressive government bring out the little Nazi in a lot a people? It never ceases to amaze me.
My guess is that some enterprising head-shop will begin selling synthetic dog poo to turn in as your initial sample.
The country needs more jobs for trackers and registrars.
In Rush Limbaugh little boy's voice: "Daddy, when I grow up, I want to be a dog poop DNA analyst."
Honest to Pete, dog turds. I suppose they're annoying, but I've never gotten too worked up over them. Even when they're on my lawn.
I live in Amish country. The roads and streets are often strewn with horsesh*t -- the real stuff, in copious amounts. I suspect these people would keel over and die if they encountered that.
Sad it’s come to that, but it is really not ok for people to leave poo lying around.
