St. Louis — This is why your mother says to wash your hands after handling money.
An employee of DoodyCalls Pet Waste Removal in St. Louis says he recently found $58 packed in dog poop, then returned the cash to the pooch’s owner.
But Steve Wilson says he sanitized the bills first.
Wilson says he wasn’t sure what to do when he first noticed money sticking out from the doggie doo.
But after pulling out the cash and cleaning it, he placed it in a plastic zip-locked bag and gave it back to the customer.
The Association of Professional Animal Waste Specialists says Wilson is the first person in his profession to find and report money in dog poop.
