Whose Poop?
Picking the poop upAdvances in forensic science has created a worldwide effort to catch up with people who don't clean up after their dogs. Many apartment owners are now requiring in their leases that dogs of tenants submit to DNA testing. There's actually a company to do the dirty work.  PooPrints offers special leak-proof containers ad spatulas to make the job easier. A thumbnail sized sample of the suspect poop is sent to the lab ... and that leads back to the dog and owner.

That Chicken Bit Back
Farmers in Georgia have found a chicken with teeth. Researchers say a recessed gene may be responsible. It is possible that this isn't the only one case of toothed fowl.

A Shot To The Tail
Don't be surprised if the next time your cat gets an injection, it's in the tail. Recent concerns have come up over treating rare, but potentially deadly injection site sarcomas.
