In Cheshire, England , a police dog has been adopted by a dog service unit that can smell male seminal fluid. Police hope this skill will help them find suspected rapists more quickly. It is reported by the BBC .
A golden Labrador named April underwent six weeks of training and learned to detect as little as 0.016 ml of seminal fluid. Moreover, April can find traces of sperm months and even years after she was released.
According to lead trainer Dean Allen, dogs can help police find criminals when traditional search methods are impossible due to the small amount of the substance.
“Dogs can indicate the presence of seminal fluid in places where traditional instruments cannot detect it. As soon as they identify the smell, this piece of material or vegetation can be sent for examination, and the DNA extracted can be profiled, which will lead to new prosecutions, ”the policeman explained.
Earlier it became known that in Britain the Labrador adopted 15 ducklings . The dog closely monitors his family and drives away strangers.
