Police probe pirate-DVD detecting dog's demise

The dog it was that died

SANS - Survey on application security programs

A dog trained to track down pirate DVDs has been found dead. The cause of death is not yet known.

Police named the disc-sniffing mutt as Manny, one of a pair donated to Malaysian anti-piracy authorities by the Motion Picture Association of America, the New Straits Times reported yesterday.

Manny and companion Paddy arrived in Malaysia from Northern Ireland earlier this year, and began work in April. They joined co-workers Lucky and Flo, who made headlines last year when they uncovered 1.6m illicit CDs during a five-month investigation into Malaysian disc piracy.

Manny was found dead a week ago at an undisclosed location. Local police officials said their canine colleague's body had been sent for a post-mortem.

At this stage, police do not suspect foul play, but Manny's anti-piracy unit has been threatened by criminals on many occasions, they said.
