With hunting seasons underway, Minnesota DNR K9s focus on protecting people and natural resources
As the days turn cooler and hunting seasons kick off, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources’ K9 Unit’s five teams are preparing to shift their focus to the field.
The three dogs trained to sniff zebra mussels will continue working to prevent the spread of aquatic invasive species as long as there’s open water. However, all the handlers and their dogs will begin spending even more time on seasonal aspects of their work, such as locating lost hunters or other individuals, recovering evidence like spent rifle cartridges or shotgun shells, and detecting potentially illegally taken wildlife. They’ll also continue to assist the Minnesota DNR Enforcement Division’s law enforcement partners throughout the state.
