Friday semen blogging

This article was posted at the BBC site but I'm linking to the India site because they are the only ones who seem to know the difference between semen and sperm:

Swedish police dog trained to scent semen
GOTHENBURG, Sweden | August 12, 2005 8:12:06 AM IST

Swedish police may have a new assistant in rape investigations -- a dog trained to smell semen.

Captain Lena Thor of the canine unit of Vastra Gotaland County Police, Gothenburg, told the BBC that Xena, a Belgian Malinois, has not yet been tested in active service. She said the canine unit decided to train the dog after receiving a request from the investigation unit.

We have a lot of rapes which are outside, in parks, and sometimes it is hard for the victim to tell us exactly where it happened, she said.

Xena has been cross-trained to sniff out flammable liquids as well.

OH! MY! GOD! Journalism at its worst. The ONLY point in even THINKING about printing something like that is to address the question on EVERYBODY'S mind:

How, exactly, did they conduct the training?
