White dog poo sells for £523
CANNY Kieran Carpenter has made a tidy packet by flogging a lump of white dog shit he carefully stored away in 1986 – for the tidy lump sum of £ 523.
Kieran ( 67, took note of the increasing scarcity of white canine poo and decided to make it an investment for the future. So the retired screenprinter, from Devizes, Wiltshire, collected a fine example and stored it in an airtight jar which he kept in his garden shed.
Kieran said: “I even got my local vicar to sign a note of provenance so everyone would know when and where It’s from.
“It’s crazy I know but I had a feeling that it would be a good investment – but I was blown away when it sold for more than £ 500 to a collector.”
Experts reckon white dog poo has died out as animal food manufacturers have stopped using a bulking ingredient.
