Iowa neighborhood taking dog DNA tests, fining owners for dog waste

Posted: Updated:

In one Iowa neighborhood, dog DNA tests are being used to track the pet responsible for the crime.

In West Des Moines, a neighborhood is conducting forensic tests after tenants have failed to pick up after their dogs.

After the tests, the DNA will be kept on file. Waste that is not picked up will be tested, and then traced back to the owner for a fine.

After the third strike, man and man's best friend are kicked off the property.
