Pooper Scooper scofflaws
In Ipswich, MA, a small coastal community, somewhat like Coconut Grove, they're considering fining people for not cleaning up after their dogs by using DNA testing. When they find random dog droppings, they would test them for not following the pooper scooper law.
PooPrints is the company that creates the database and is then able to match it to the offending pooch.
It's expensive if every dog is tested, $34.95 each to have the mouth swabbed and then put in the data base and then another $75 to process the offending sample.
