YES, walking down the street or around your apartment complex and noticing how many people did not pick up after their dogs can be infuriating – especially on a hot day.
A Twitch streamer has claimed that her apartment complex is dealing with this issue by DNA testing their furry residents and fining their pooch parents for not picking up after them.
The content creator, who goes by her first name Kallie, shared on social media a resident announcement she had gotten in the mail regarding the issue.
Amid a fit of giggles, she began reading off the paper: "Due to a small percentage of residents that have not been using the provided pet stations to pick up after their dogs, we are instituting a program known as PooPrints.
"We are unable to keep up with the unscooped dog waste and are taking immediate corrective action."
"Okay, fair," she noted before continuing to read: "Every dog owner should complete registration for their dogs at the apartments and visit our officers to provide a DNA cheek swab."

The announcement claimed that if they found dog poop on the premises, they would be taking samples and running them along with the data from the swab.
This would provide them with an answer as to who was failing to clean up and they would be fined $350, plus have their lease potentially terminated.
On top of that, if residents failed to register their dogs, they would be fined an additional $150 and risk losing their lease as well.
Along with the video, she added: "I didn't even know it got that bad."

Following her posting the video, many took to the comment section to say this would actually solve the problem.
One person wrote: "I mean nobody should have a problem with that unless they aren’t picking up after their dog."
A second added that they had a good experience with a similar process, saying: "I lived somewhere that did this and it solved the problem!"
"All apartments should be doing this honestly," a third said.
"I’m so tired of people not picking up after their pets. It’s not that damn hard."
Previously, another woman could not believe the measures her neighbor took to take care of her yard.
An anonymous reader wrote to the New York Times to ask for advice on this issue.
The reader wrote that the neighbor had been sneaking into their yard to weed and do other work without permission.
"At first, we were confused by magically improved areas of our yard; we move and use a week whacker, but that's about it," the anonymous reader explained.
"The mystery was solved when I came home early from work one day and discovered our neighbor hard at work on our lawn."
