Think it was CSI had an episode, but can't remember if was dog or cat DNA that ot the baddie. Noted with interest and think something like this would be good for all police to have access to. Thank you.

I just yesterday read about this in our local newspaper. That's terrific. Perhaps we'll be able to use the DNA of cats and dogs to nab criminals more often in the future.
