    DNA is being used to reduce dog poop

    An Israeli city is using DNA analysis of dog droppings to reward and punish pet owners.

    Under a six-month trial programme launched this week, the city of Petah Tikva, a suburb of Tel Aviv, is asking dog owners to take their animal to a municipal veterinarian, who then swabs its mouth and collects DNA.

    The city will use the DNA database it is building to match faeces to a registered dog and identify its owner.

    Owners who scoop up their dogs' droppings and place them in specially marked bins on Petah Tikva's streets will be eligible for rewards of pet food coupons and dog toys.

    But droppings found underfoot in the street and matched through the DNA database to a registered pet could earn its owner a municipal fine.

    I love this article. We have way too many dogs loose in our neighborhood (i.e. irresponsible owners).

    that sounds like an expensive way to solve a problem that isn't all that bad considering the terrorism that they have over there.
