Wilmington apartment complex to check dog poop for DNA
WRAL ^ | 2/19/14

WILMINGTON, N.C. — A Wilmington apartment complex will soon be running DNA tests on dog poop to identify owners who don't clean up after their pooches do their business.

The StarNews of Wilmington reports The Reserve at Forest Hills will ask the complex's 100 dog owners to have their pets swabbed for a DNA sample.

Then, if poop found in the complex matches a pet, the owner will be fined and also will have to pay for the DNA testing which can cost up to $50.

Can we apply this technique to Occupy Movement campers and poopers, esp. the guy who crapped on a Police Car?

Terms of a protest permit. Bend Over and Smile.

I’d like to apply this technique to all the Democrat politicians who have crapped up and on this wonderful country of ours.

You wouldn’t believe the size of the Q-Tip I would use to take a swab, but it would be big enough to put up a Clipper ship sail.

NCIS says “Bull!”

Unless there’s blodd in the stool, it is all food waste that never picked up any of the animal’s cells.

This is a PR stunt, meant to intimidate folks into being responsible.

You’re using scientific knowledge and common sense.
That’s not allowed nowadays.
The only permissible reference material is Tweets from Kanye West or Facebook posts from Miley Virus.

At $50 a test, I would bankrupt the Kravitz’ plan. Ever heard of “salting the find”?

Yep!

False advertising at its finest.

Nothing claims they actually make dog to poop matches.

Its all lies and intimidation.

“Your honor, my client, Scruffy, maintains that Exhibit D is, in fact, not his poop. We claim that Mrs. Wiggin’s dog, Balfour, bit Scruffy thereby ingesting some of Scruffy’s DNA which Balfour, with malice a forethought, deposited on the South lawn. The real criminal in this case is Balfour and we demand that justice be swiftly served upon him with a newspaper.”

If it wasn’t agreed to in the lease agreement...the apartment management can go pound sand.

Here’s an opportunity for Apple. There are 164,000,000 pooping pooches in the country and roughly twice as many (also pooping) owners. Develop a dog poop DNA tester, calling it, let’s say, iPoop.

Just when you thought there couldn’t be any more police procedural shows, now we have CSI: Canine S**& Investigation. In this episode, Scraps blames the crime on one of his identical littermates.

DNA is not found in excrement — so good luck to the apartment managers on this one.

Actually, cells from the intestinal lining are shed into the intestinal contents all the time. Those cells have a life span of 24-48 hours, and there is no other place for them to go when they die. I am not sure of the quality of DNA from those cells; it could very well be high enough quality to identify individual dogs.

Yes, but isn’t the underlying premise that you have to have a database of DNA of known suspects? Where does that data come from?

I’d leave a stool sample on the apartment manager’s desk and then leave the complex when my lease was up.

I believe the article said that owners would be required to provide samples of their dogs’ DNA prior to moving into the apartments.
