AUCKLAND, New Zealand, Sept. 30 (UPI) -- A New Zealand woman said she awoke recently to discover her home and car had been covered in what she believes to be human feces from an airplane.

Karen Bass of Auckland said she awoke Sunday to discover there were splotches of brown matter all over her house and her silver car, which she believes to be human waste dropped from an airplane.


Bass said her home is directly in the flight path for planes coming into Auckland International Airport.

"The first thing when I walked out of my door this morning and I saw it, I thought an airplane [expletive] on us. You open the door and it smells like [expletive]," she told the New Zealand Herald.

"I'm absolutely disgusted at the moment. The amount of crap everywhere is horrendous," she said.

Bass said she is going to have a sample of feces independently tested to verify it came from humans.

"There's no way it's a bird or animal poo, it's horrible. I'm sure it's human, what else could it be with huge clumps like that?" she said.


An Airways New Zealand spokeswoman suggested Bass complain directly to the offending airline, but the homeowner said she would not know which airline to address as she did not see the plane.
