Barking dog poo DNA test

Dog poo DNA test launches in Barking and Dagenham

A pilot scheme to test the DNA of dog poo to try and catch owners who fail to clear up after their pet has begun.

Samples of dog mess will be collected by officers from the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham Council and park rangers during the next three months.

DNA will then be compared to a database of registered owners.

Registering dogs is voluntary for owners but will be required by law from April.

And of course, it's the owners of registered dogs who don't pick up their dog's poo

Registering dogs is voluntary for owners but will be required by law from April.
Speeding, Paying Tax, Murder, Theft are all proscribed by law too

This smacks of a cheap, tacky, provincial PR company stunt to advertise the compulsory (ha!) Dog Registration scheme
