Is that accurate, though?

I will try to pass this idea do the Commandant of Krakow Municipal Police next time I see him. I'm sure he'll love it!

Not the story, linking a dog's DNA to dog poop? I wonder how accurate that will be and also, what if someone who doesn't live there let's their dog poop there and doesn't clean it up? What if two different people have littermates?

I don't imagine these tests are too different than those we use through AKC - recognizing DNA sequence. This, I believe, would be unique even in the case of siblings (littermates), maybe with the exception of identical twins. I would not be surprised to use this kind of technology used in other legal ways in the future - dog bite cases for example, or having DNA "tied" to a dog during microchip implantation (well, maybe not in the US...we aren't that advanced...unless it was voluntary )
