Advocates for open space and Boulder officials long have lamented the difficulty of enforcing the law against people who leave dog waste along area trails.

Boulder City Councilwoman Mary Young wants to know how feasible it would be to require DNA samples from dogs with city-issued green tags that could be saved for later comparison to waste found on open space.

I have heard that some subdivisions with home owner associations require a DNA test from every dog owned by a resident. Then if they find poo on sidewalks or any where it isn't supposed to be around the common areas, they test it and fine the dog's owner.
