While some Israelis are concerned about the collapsing stock market, or that Tzipi Livni will be Prime Minister soon, Reuters reports that others are flaming mad about the last time they stepped in dog poo and want justice. Some of those angry residents are in Petach Tikva (Petah Tiqwa, or spell it how you will), where a new program just launched to collect the DNA of the neighborhood pooches. If you pick up your dog’s poop and put it in a specially marked bin, you could be the lucky winner of coupons and prizes. But if they find your little puppy’s feces on the sidewalk, you’ll be slapped with a big fine.
I just feel bad for the poor, poor person who is responsible for tracing the dog poop to its owner. Now that is a crappy job!
