Using Dog Poo DNA to Catch Scofflaw Dog Owners
Famous Italian tourist destination turning to DNA to identify scofflaw dog owners
Visitors to the island of Capri, a gorgeous Italian summer destination for the wealthy, are accustomed to movie star sightings, priceless views of the sparkling sea, over-the-top yachts and stepping in dog poo? According to recent news reports, Capris mayor, Ciro Lembo, says it costs the tiny island in the Gulf of Naples around 5 million euros a year to keep the island clean. Do you really think we will let the reputation of the island, whose beauty is coveted by the world, be compromised by bodily needs left in the streets by inattentive or arrogant dog owners? Lembo said in an interview with Adnkronos, an Italian press agency.
