Zebra Mussel-Sniffing Dogs
The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has a new, four-legged partner in fighting the spread of aquatic, invasive species. Highly-trained dogs can sniff out just about anything, from drugs to bombs. But these ones are detecting zebra mussels.
Minnesota’s fishing opener is just a few days away and for the first time in this state, dogs will be used this weekend to sniff out zebra mussels.
