Your Dog's Poop Under Investigation

Once or twice a month I feel the need to start a blog post with the word "Wow." I have barely restrained myself in this post, but you get the point.


Reuters reports today:
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.
Big brother alive and well in Israel.
