A group of Wellington students are facing a mystery worthy of Scooby-Doo Doo after discovering a "steaming pile of poo" on their living room floor.
In a now-deleted post on the Vic Deals Facebook page, flat resident Hugo revealed the group had gotten home from a night out about 1am, and discovered the unwelcome gift.
They were reportedly left mystified as to who had pooed on the floor, but thought it was probably "someone random" who didn't make it to the bathroom in time - an emergency defecation situation, perhaps.
"None of us saw it because our flatmate's friends cleaned most of it as soon as they saw it but we were told about it this morning and saw the stain," Hugo told the Herald.
"Initially we were laughing about it but the more you think about it the weirder the whole situation seems," he added.
"We have absolutely zero clue, which is what makes it so weird."
A subsequent article was posted onto the Vic Deals page, which saw many people tagging in their friends, but no real evidence as to who the mystery pooer could be.
