A black Irish Labrador that goes by the name Paddy helped raid a warehouse outside of Singapore that contained over 35,000 pirated disc of new hit movies like Star Trek and Terminator: Salvation.
How does Paddy do it? Paddy is trained to smell for the polycarbonate plastic in discs.
Director of the Asian MPA:
"We are glad to hear that Paddy’s skills are being put to good use against the large, organized network of pirates involved in exporting illegal pirated DVDs to Singapore,”
Paddy is following in the footsteps of her mentors Lucky and Flo. Lucky and Flo conducted 35 raids, resulting in 26 arrests and the seizure of nearly 100 DVD burners, five replication machines, and nearly 2 million pirated DVDs (estimated street value: $3.5 million).
Lucky and Flo were so successful, one Malaysian pirate syndicate put a bounty of $30,000 on the dogs’ heads, the MPAA said.
