Eels thrown on front lawn in bizarre attack

Who's behind the mysterious eel attack in Timaru in New Zealand?

CCTV footage has captured four people getting out of two cars near a Collins St house. The people then threw eels on the house's front lawn.

Police are trying to track down the perpetrators.

The attack, conducted around 11:20pm on Sunday night, has left residents confused.

One elderly resident said she heard cars late last night and, a bit later on, other odd noises.

"I thought it was a dog or somebody in the bushes here, but I don't know anything about any eels," she said.

Another resident on the quiet suburban street was also bemused. "What a strange thing to throw at someone," he said.
