Dog poop to be DNA tested in Essex

A Village will DNA test dog poop to track down irresponsible owners.

Alresford Council in Essex has decided to take action against lazy dog-walkers who refuse to pick up foul waste left behind by their pets, by carrying out forensic testing on selected samples.

In the same way that criminals are tracked down through keeping DNA records, animals will be swabbed and the results matched with poo samples taken from public areas.
