(KCEN) -- Dog may be man's best friend. But sometimes, the best friend is not so great at picking up what dogs leave behind.
Now there is a campaign in Dallas to use DNA to track down the dog and the owner and it could turn a profit.
At the Ilume Apartments on Cedar Springs, every owner must have their pet swabbed for a DNA sample that's entered in the World Pet Registry.
It could help an owner find a lost dog, but if the complex finds a mess on the property, it sends in a sample to match the DNA and the owner faces a $250 fine or even eviction.
The company charges 30 bucks for the swab and 50 for the DNA tests, but it figures the city of Dallas could earn millions of dollars on fines for the millions of pounds of poop left on city streets.
