In a drive to reduce dog mess, people who fail to clean up after their pets will see them shamed with canine photofits, or “pugshots”, put up in public places and published in a council newsletter.
DNA taken from samples of dog faeces will be issued to create a computer-generated image of the offenders. Key information taken from the samples will include gender, coat texture, length and colour and nose and eye colour.*boggle*
The council has spent £5,000 informing residents about the scheme, which is expected to fund itself as owners must pay to have their dogs DNA registered.I can't find, anywhere, any news on how many fines have been issued (never mind actually paid).
