Condo board wants pet DNA to track down poopers
DESTIN - Some Florida condo owners are steaming after their homeowners association asked them to submit their dog's DNA in order to fine owners who don't pick up after their pets.
Harbor Landing residents said they received a letter last week and some feel it's an invasion of privacy. The letter asked residents to register their dogs and cats with the association through a DNA test, citing a significant increase in the amount of animal feces found throughout the property recently, including inside the elevators.
The News Herald reports pet owners would have to pay for the DNA test, registration fee and any potential cleanup fees.
Condo officials say it's a voluntary process and that the measure is only meant to help keep the property clean.
