British police enter 'Big Brother' house and seize "gorilla coat"

UPI News Service, 01/19/2006 

A so-called "gorilla coat" belonging to a contestant on Britain's "Big Brother" reality TV show was seized by police for testing Thursday.

The Hertfordshire Constabulary entered the house and took Pete Burns' coat after a number of complaints were registered by viewers of the Channel 4 program, the BBC reported.

Controversy has been growing since Burns first boasted his coat was made of gorilla fur earlier this month. Owning gorilla skin without a permit is illegal and a government minister has warned Burns could go from the "Big Brother" house to the big house if the coat turns out to be contraband.

A police spokeswoman told the BBC: "The coat will now be tested."
