Florida Condo Creates Dog DNA Database to Track Owners Who Don’t Clean Up After Their Pets

Naples, Florida, is known for its crime and mafia ties, but the city also has another issue plaguing residents: dog poop. Now, the city is taking a stance on the problem by creating a dog DNA database. Dog owners must register a sample of their dog’s “business,” and then samples of piles of poo left on the street will be entered into the database and used to identify the irresponsible owner behind the mess. The city will fine culprits $685. Other states that have adopted the same method of cleaning up after irresponsible owners include a Massachusetts condo complex that charges a $150 fine, a Texas apartment complex that fines offenders $250, and a New Jersey condo complex that charges up to $1,000 for third-time offenders.
