Auto-Induced Fly Catching

Taking a break from the most exciting or second most exciting educational event this month, I have just received a message from Google Scholar Citations asking if I wanted to add the following to my profile:

JG LANE, RJ Holmes
BRITISH VETERINARY JOURNAL 128 (9), 477-&, 1972

Unfortunately, I couldn't claim credit for this work. In 1972 I was still immersed in the Irish Home Rule Debate and the rise of the Sokoto Caliphate.

I wonder whether this was an attempt to develop an environmentally friendly form of pest control or is this a serious mental disorder among certain kinds of dogs?

Is it too late to submit a nomination for the IgNobel awards?
