Submitted by

lee1 writes "It turns out that the U.K. has a DNA database — for dogs. And this
database was recently used to apprehend a South London gang member who used his dog
to catch a 16-year-old rival and hold him while he stabbed him to death.
The dog was also accidentally stabbed, and left blood at the scene.
The creation of human DNA databases has led to widespread debates on
privacy; but what about the collation of DNA from dogs or other animals?"
