Since about everybody hates poachers and about everybody loves dogs, this video of the Indiana K-9 Resource Protection Program.

The video may be from Indiana but it has some close ties to Kansas. The very successful Kansas K-9 program is modeled after what’s been done in Indiana for quite a few years. In fact, the wardens within our program, and their dogs, get much of their training in Indiana. Several other states use the Indiana training program, too.
Kansas’ four-legged game wardens have played key roles in hundreds of cases, ranging from finding key bits of evidence used to help convict poachers to tracking down felons on the run.
Kansas game warden Chris Stout, of Wellington, makes an appearance on the video and furnished the link.
