Concern for animals going a bit too far here...

From the Otago Daily Times, 17 Dec 2007:

A man who invented a composting toilet using worms had to prove the worms were not traumatised before authorities would approve his product. An Auckland Regional Council official told Coll Bell to get an expert's report on the psychological impact on the worms. "She felt that the worms were being unfairly treated, being expected to deal with human faeces, and that it could affect them in a psychological way," Mr Bell said.

How exactly do you go about finding an expert on worm psychology?
