According to this story, Toby, a Jack Russell terrier, managed to register to vote in New Zealand. Apparently, the dog's owner, irate with government bureaucracy, sent in the registration form, complete with paw signature and occupation "rodent exterminator", as a protest.
Imagine the surprise when Mr. Toby Russell Rhodes received written confirmation of his approval to vote in the New Zealand elections. Now the pet owner is worried how many others are falsely enrolled as voters.
The Authorities, on the other hand, were not really amused and instead of admitting their mistake, they accused Rhodes of committing an offence and he will now have to deal with the police.
