Stripping tourist calls New Zealand wolf whistlers' bluff

WELLINGTON -- An Israeli woman tourist annoyed by wolf-whistling New Zealand street workers silenced her tormentors when she stripped naked to use a cash machine, police said Thursday.

The woman was waiting to use the machine in the main street of the northern town of Kerikeri when road workers whistled, prompting her to take all her clothes off.

After extracting her cash, the young woman calmly put her clothes back on and walked away, Police Sergeant Peter Masters said.

"She said she had thought, 'Bugger them, I'll show them what I've got,'" Masters said of the incident last week.

"She gave the explanation that she had been...pestered by New Zealand men. She's not an unattractive-looking lady," he told the New Zealand Press Association.

Police spoke to the woman and warned her that stripping naked in public was inappropriate in New Zealand, despite the unusually warm early winter weather.

She was due to leave the country Thursday.
