Or, is it time to get into dog farming in Taiwan?
City officials in Taichung, which has a population of one million, said on Wednesday the environmental protection bureau would give vouchers worth 100 Taiwan dollars ($3) for every kilo of dog poo collected. In areas of the city especially affected, the reward will be for every half-kilo.
I\’ve not done the experiment but I can imagine that a large dog could produce a kilo of pooh a day. You might be able to experiment with diet and get that higher as well, lots of lovely undigestible roughage.
And I\’m absolutely certain that you can feed a dog for less than $3 a day.
Time to farm dogs then? Sell the old ones to the Koreans over the ocean?
