We all know that DNA testing can help re-unite family members, solve murder crimes and determine paternity. Well, the latest DNA testing trend is something you never would have guessed; the highly sophisticated procedure is being used to test dog poop!
An apartment complex in New Hampshire has recently turned to DNA dog testing in order to catch pet owners that don’t pick up after their dogs. Debbie Violette, the apartment manager at Timberwood Commons, has decided that residents must submit pet DNA samples because of the growing problem of “unscooped poop” she has noticed.
“It makes me angry. I don’t want it to get any worse and it’s just not acceptable the way it is.” –Debbie Violette
How does DNA Dog Testing work?
After the at-home DNA kits are purchased, samples of each dogs’ saliva are taken and sent into the lab where the DNA profiles are stored. Once evidence (aka poop) is found, a sample is sent in to the DNA testing laboratory where it is compared with the DNA samples on file, therefore determining who committed the canine crime.
Timberwood Commons is among a growing number of apartment complexes executing DNA dog testing programs in hopes of enforcing greater responsibility among pet owners.
