Move over sniffer dogs, drug-detecting squirrels are here

Police in the Chinese city of Chongqing has begun using specially-trained squirrels in their war against drug traffickers.

The Police Dog Brigade of the Criminal Police Detachment in Hechuan District, Chongqing has successfully bred the first batch of drug-sniffing squirrels in China. The breakthrough was part of the country’s national key research and development project, which sought, among others, the creation of new training methods for anti-drug animals. Apparently, scientists have been aware of squirrels’ keen sense of smell for a long time, but rodent training methods were apparently not advanced enough until now.

Lol, I wonder what the fentanyl LD is for Squirrels. I don't see this ending well for the squirrels.

Squirrels have the ability to climb very well and fast. I bet they are way more effective than sniffer pooches. :wub: So cute too!
