INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Several Indianapolis apartment complexes have turned to DNA to catch dog owners who fail to clean up after their pets.

They’ve employed a company called Poo Prints that takes cheek swabs from renter’s dogs to collect DNA samples of the pets.

If maintenance crews find dog droppings anywhere on the apartment’s property, they collect a sample that’s sent for analysis. Renters found to have failed to clean up after their canine face fines.

Renters who don’t clean up their dog’s feces could face fines at several apartments.
