Mystery mess dogs SA parliament

South African parliamentarians are perplexed at the origin of a pile of dog excrement that appeared near an opposition leader's seat.

The discovery caused Inkatha Freedom Party leader Mangosuthu Buthelezi to shift to another seat on Thursday.

The Star newspaper reported that Mr Buthelezi was "visibly shocked", amid suggestions of foul play.

But on Friday, an official told the South African Press Association that a security sniffer dog might be to blame.

'Still upset'

"The dog handlers were in and out of parliament quite a few times yesterday (Thursday)," the unnamed parliamentary official said.

"Two dogs and their handlers did a security sweep of the chamber."

But Mr Buthelezi - one of South Africa's best-known political veterans - was "still very upset," his spokesman John Cayzer said.

"We feel it's unlikely to be the security dogs," he said, but did not comment on whom Mr Buthelezi considered responsible for the incident.

Surely Sniffer Dogs are for searching out and removing suspect packages, not leaving them...? (http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/africa/4587087.stm)
