The Boston Globe reported today that the Animal Control Officer in Ipswich is trying to convince the town selectmen to set up a DNA database of all registered dogs in the town. The idea is that when the powers-that-be discover an uncleaned up dog poop, a sample will get sent off for a DNA match, and the dog’s owner will get fined heavily.
So which will it be for Newton?
A. Continue to wallow in dog filth
B. Immediately institute a canine police state, and let’s tap their phones while we’re at it.
