NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – How much is $58 in dog poo worth?

When professional pooper-scooper Steve Wilson of St. Louis spotted some dirty money in a pile of canine caca last week, he picked out the bills and dutifully returned them to the pooping pooch’s owner, Karen Lin.

Now, Lin is auctioning off the crappy cash in the original baggy in which in it was given to her on eBay.

But Lin isn’t trying to get rich. Rather, she tells AOL News she wants to “draw attention to the fact that if you’re not careful, your dog can chew up and swallow just about anything.”

In fact, her rambunctious golden retriever/poodle mix, “Fozzie,” ate one of her bras once and later passed the entire garment in one piece.

Proceeds from Lin’s eBay auction – which ends Tuesday (Jun. 29) – will go to the Humane Society, but after three days of bidding, the poo-smeared cash is only going for $20.
