I’m not sure if I love what Israel is doing to dogs, particularly in Petah Tikvah. To curb the amount of dog feces left in public parks and streets, the city is asking that dog owners get their poochesÂ DNA tested.
Someone, with the worst job ever, will then test any samples left on the street against the city’s data base. Those found to be breaking the new rule will be fined.
People seems to be pleased with the new rules:
Owners who scoop up their dogs’ droppings and place them in specially marked bins on Petah Tikva’s streets will be eligible for rewards of pet food coupons and dog toys.
Funny, when I was a toddler, I too received toys and treats for pooping in the specially marked bin in my parents’ house.
