MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Minnesota is now the second state in the U.S. to use dogs to sniff out zebra mussels and other aquatic invasive species.

The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) will demonstrate the skills of their mussel-sniffing K-9 teams on Tuesday at Fort Snelling State Park.

The dogs will officially begin work during this weekend’s fishing opener to help fight the spread of invasive species like the zebra mussel.
