It’s already proven to be enormously successful in the US, the UK and many other parts of the world…
So, should Greystones consider introducing dog DNA testing to combat our mutt muck problem?
It’s certainly worth considering, given that scientific advancements means that not only can we use DNA when it comes to human genetics but also on our canine friends as well.
Which means that, when a dog does a poop and run, we’ll be able to track down the little bugger. And, just as importantly, the Scarlet Pimpernel who was clearly just distracted for that crucial millisecond whilst their beloved pooch had a poo.
In the exact same public spot they have a poo every day.
Suggested at last Tuesday’s Greystones Municipal District Council meeting by Cllr Derek Mitchell, and now with the Department of the Environment to chew on, we reckon introducing DNA sampling when it comes to dog fouling would have a huge effect on Greystones’ streets. By making them instantly cleaner, as those regularly distracted dog owners suddenly paying a lot more attention to where their little canine crapper drops his load.
