Doggy DNA Database considered as fouling solution


Flintshire council are considering a proposal to construct a database of dog mess DNA with the purpose of catching owners who do not clean up after their canine companions in public spaces.

Councillor Arnold Woolley called for the council to establish the “information bank” to crack down on owners who “display no social conscience”.

Punishments arising from being identified could be an immediate £75 fine or a penalty of up to £2500 if the case goes to court.

The proposal will be discussed in a meeting at the County Hall in Mold on Thursday 23rd July, where councillors will make a decision to reject or accept the proposal.
