Capri is a small island located in the southern part of the Bay of Naples with a population of 7,305 people which is famous for being a place of many tourist destinations. Some residents who live on this island live accompanied by pets such as dogs.
Unfortunately, many of the pet owners are less sensitive to the environment by allowing their dogs to defecate on the streets. Faced with this phenomenon, the mayor of Capri decided to trace the dog’s owner by conducting a DNA test.
The DNA itself was recorded when the dogs underwent blood tests to detect disease in dogs. If found violating this regulation, dog owners can be fined 2,000 euros or the equivalent of IDR 35.8 million.

The reason for the prohibition of chewing gum is because of the health risks and damage to the environment caused by the habit of consuming chewing gum. Luckily, the regulations began to loosen up a bit in 2004, namely by being allowed to consume chewing gum as long as it is accompanied by a doctor’s prescription.
