LEBANON, N.H. (AP) — The manager of a New Hampshire apartment complex says she's going to test dog doo to help ensure that pet owners clean up after their animals.

The Timberwood Commons in Lebanon opened this year and already has had problems with residents who aren't scooping up the messes.

So manager Debbie Violette is going to use commercially available DNA sampling kits to check the DNA of dog leavings.

She says residents are being told Friday they must submit samples from their dogs so DNA profiles can be put on file.

Violette says she hasn't decided what to do if she catches a pet owner not cleaning up after their dog. But they'll probably be fined.
