Msian DVD pirates continue their fight against sniffer dogs

First, they wanted to kill them and now the DVD pirates in Malaysia have decided to spray chemicals on the pirated discs to confuse their arch enemy- the two sniffer dogs, Lucky and Flo. From Guardian:
The two female Labradors have been trained to detect polycarbonate chemicals used in manufacturing discs. But officials received a tip that bootleggers are using chemical sprays to throw Lucky and Flo off the scent, said Fahmi Kassim, the Domestic Trade Ministry's enforcement chief in southern Johor state.

"The pirates are believed to be desperate because the dogs were so successful,'' Fahmi told The Associated Press.

Ministry authorities last week said the dogs were moved to a safe house after a source informed them that DVD and CD pirates were offering a bounty to anyone who could kill the dogs, on loan for at least a month from the Motion Picture Association of America.
