RCMP Drug Sniffing Dogs

/ 97.3 The Eagle

Specially-trained fentanyl-sniffing R-C-M-P dogs are already proving their value in this province. The Mounties say one of three dog teams trained to detect the deadly opioid has intercepted 12-thousand fentanyl pills in B-C. One hundred-and-39 R-C-M-P narcotics profile dog teams from across Canada are being trained to detect fentanyl, a drug that has been linked to the soaring number of illicit drug deaths nationwide. R-C-M-P say they transformed pure fentanyl into a diluted liquid form, enabling the dogs to train with the real smell of the drug without any risk of inhaling it.
