Sri Lankan police have apologised after holding a group wedding for their sniffer dogs

dogSri Lankan police have apologised after holding a group wedding for nine pairs of sniffer dogs, who were dressed in traditional Buddhist shawls and socks during the ceremony.


The officers dressed nine pairs of pooches, who are trained to detect drugs and explosives, in traditional wedding attire including Buddhist shawls and socks for their big day in the town of Kandy.


The joint ceremony was screened on TV and witnessed by top police officers, veterinary surgeons, doctors and members of the public, and it even featured the happy canine couples being driven away in a specially-decorated police vehicle for their “honeymoons”.


However, Culture and Arts Minister T.B. Ekananayake slammed the pooch nuptials, saying they undermined traditional weddings, and has now called for an investigation.


But police spokesman Buddhika Siriwardena insisted the ceremony was part of a plan to encourage sniffer dogs to breed domestically.
