Spanish City Sent Dog Poop Back to Owners

The city of Brunete, Spain, is tired of owners not picking up after their dogs, and came up with the perfect solution: mail the dog poop back to the owners!

During the course of a week a team of twenty volunteers patrolled the town's streets on the lookout for dog owners who failed to scoop. They then approached the guilty owner and struck up a casual conversation to discover the name of the dog.

"With the name of the dog and the breed it was possible to identify the owner from the registered pet database held in the town hall," explained a spokesman from the council.

The volunteers then scooped up the excrement and packaged it in a box branded with town hall insignia and marked 'Lost Property' and delivered by courier to the pet owners home.

There is a service for gated communities called PooPrints that collects saliva from all the dogs of a community and retrieves the DNA and then if dog excrement is found that the negligent owners failed to pick up, the poo is shipped off to PooPrints, the dog identified by DNA typing and the owners fined.
