Some property owners and condos are using DNA testing to catch people not picking up after their dogs, so yeah, using it to stop poaching shouldn't be shocking. The testing is fairly cheap these days.

My Brother in law had a 'smoking stone' made from a seal's tooth. Of course he got it in the 60's in Alaska, probably killed by a Eskimo with a lead filled snowshoe.
