DNA from Dog Poop Tracks Down Owners Who Won't Pick up After Fido

by Dr. Chris

April 10, 2011 In San Sebastian, Spain, they have made a DNA database of the dogs in town to track down owners who fail to pick up dog feces.

The Spanish town council approved a law where dog owners must register their dog's DNA.

Dog feces left around the town will be collected and a dog DNA test done to figure out which dog it came from.

If they track you down you have to pay a fine of 300 euros or about $433.

The fine also applies if you fail to submit a sample of your dog's DNA.

Another side benefit of this plan is that lost dogs could be more easily returned to their owners.

I never heard about such dog DNA test. Is it really possible to gather all dogs' samples? To my mind, the only benefit of this measure is that it will be really easier for owners to find their lost dogs. Visit http://academic-writings.com if you need more effective articles or essays on the topic.

Wow ! it's funny and amazing. That this is a one hell of technology. The checking of DNA for reaching their owners who do not take care of them totally. It's great effort. The blog is great. But in essay writing service, DNA and transformation is a big topic of discussion. In which the DNA technology and it's advances is discussed in so much detail. You can get so much information on it.

I think it is a very important procedure to register the DNA of dogs. It is the responsibility of the owners to do this procedure without any failure. Otherwise the owner will be fined. Thank you very much for sharing this post! Windows support
