ST. LOUIS — This is why your mother says to wash your hands after handling money: A St. Louis worker found $58 — packed in dog poop.

Steve Wilson works for DoodyCalls Pet Waste Removal. On a recent call, he noticed money sticking out from dog waste.

Wilson wasn't sure what to do but eventually pulled out the bills, sanitized them placed them in a plastic ziplocked bag and returned them to the customer. It turned out to be $58.

The company says the money was torn, but the serial numbers were identifiable, which means the bills could be returned to a bank and replaced with new money.

The Association of Professional Animal Waste Specialists says Wilson is the first person in his profession to find and report money in dog poop.
