Also in the news…

Every week we bring to you a news story which may have escaped your attention. This week, our weird story involves some dog biscuits. Parents in Whanganui, New Zealand were horrified to discover this week that they had accidentally tried to give their children dog biscuits. The mix up happened when a local supermarket had placed the Scooby Doo branded treats in the snack aisle alongside the crisps and biscuits. The treats were said to be ‘human-friendly but not recommended’.
