Pet owners have learned to clean up after their dogs when they defecate on the streets.

However, government officials in Italy, have now made it mandatory for owners to clean their dog’s urine from the street.

Dog owners in Piacenza, can now be fined up to $550 if they do not clean up when their dogs urinates on the streets.

The law will require dog owners to take a bottle of water with them every time they walk their pets.

The law, which was signed by mayor Paolo Dosi on Monday, makes it mandatory for dog owners to wash away the urine from public streets and sidewalks in the city.

Owners can also allow their dogs do their business near doorsteps, street level windows or on parked cars.

However, there are some exceptions to the new rule. Guide dogs and police dogs on duty will not have to clean urine on the streets.

All dog owners are exempt from doing so during periods of freezing weather so that the water does not turn into ice.

Residual dog urine can cause a nasty smell in areas where it accumulates. It also causes bacteria and microorganisms to grow, increasing the transmission of diseases and infections especially during the hot and dry summer months.

Police in India, are under investigation after a 17-year-old rape victim was raped a second time, during a botched undercover operation.

The first incident occurred when the teenager’s phone was stolen in Jalna, Maharashtra, and she was lured into a wooded area by 2 men who said they would return it.

However, they did not return the phone, and raped her at knifepoint. The men recorded the rape. The men then called the victim’s mother and demanded money for her release.

Despite being blackmailed, the brave teenager reported the incident to the police.

Police responded by setting up a sting operation to catch the rapists. They set up a meeting between the men and the teenager for the following day.

However, in the first of two failed sting operations, police followed the suspects too closely and the men never approached the girl.

On the third day, the police tried again, but this time with tragic results. A miscommunication led to the girl being raped a second time by the suspects.

Police said that the girl left the location to meet the suspects without telling them. The girl said that she thought that officers were following her in a police car, police said.
