Several apartment complexes are now using high tech science to stop an annoying mess.

Complex managers are using a company call “Poo Prints”. Every pet owner in the complex must submit a DNA sample from their dog to be put into a file. The company can then use a doggie DNA test to track down offending pooches and their owners.

The lab charges $30 to register the sample and $50 per test.

Residents at one apartment complex faced a $100 fine for a first offense. If it happens again, another $100 fines will be issued and the owner will have to get rid of the dog.
