The city of Petah Tikva has decided to set up a canine DNA database that will help authorities identify and fine dog owners who fail to clean up after their pets. "My goal is to get the residents involved and tell them that together, we can make our environment clean," Petah Tikva Chief Veterinarian Dr. Tika Bar-On told Reuters. A pilot program that lets owners decide whether or not to provide samples of their dogs' DNA is already in place, and has garnered positive reactions from residents who want to see their sidewalks clean, Bar-On said. The city is weighing making the samples compulsory.
