There's gold in them there hills of poop!

By Derek A.
New Taipei City is in Taiwan. And city officials there say that more than 4,000 people have collected 14,500 bags of dog dookie.

Why are so many people scooping grumpies? Because for each bag turned in, they get a lottery ticket. And if you win the lottery, you get a gold ingot.

Gold! Gold for poop!

That’s the idea. See, the Taiwanese are crummy about picking up their dog poop, so the scheme is to get people to be more responsible. By bribing them!

What’s awesome is that people who don’t own dogs have been running around looking for dog poop. That makes this the best story of the week!
