White dog poo sells for £523

Sunday Sport - - NEWS -

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.
