A West Vancouver Councillor says she’s had enough of lazy pet owners.
At the end of Monday’s council meeting, Mary-Ann Booth suggested using DNA testing to find out who is not picking up after their best friend.
“And I’ve been kind of percolating on the DNA technology for a bit because I actually am a dog owner and I walk my dog in the Ambleside Park and down the street. And I’m really always taken back by how much dog business I see.”
She says she hasn’t asked the public’s opinion or asked staff to compile a report, but says the price for the technology is becoming more affordable.
Fellow Councillor Bill Soprovich says he thinks the majority of dog owners in West Vancouver are using poop scoops and doesn’t see this as a major issue.
Anyone failing to clean up after their four-legged friend in West Vancouver is subject to a $150 penalty.
