BROOKLYN HEIGHTS - Department of Sanitation officials are looking into a phony sign posted along the Brooklyn Promenade warning dog walkers to pick up after their pooches.

The sign says that dog walkers will be find $1,000 for not cleaning up. However, officials say the wrong health logo is printed on it: the Parks Department logo is printed instead of the Sanitation Department seal. In addition, the maximum amount a person can be fined is only $250.

Either way, dog owners say they'll just play by the rules to avoid any trouble.
