Bear the dog is way cooler than pedo-bear. In fact they are arch enemies. You see, Bear has been trained by his owner Todd Jordan to sniff out electronic storage devices from hard drives to memory cards. What would a dog want with all that data? When the case involves child pornography it comes as a huge advantage to police.
To prove it, Bear was the dog who recently sniffed out the storage devices that famous Subway spokesperson Jared Fogle was using to hide all of his illegal pornography. He is one of four canines in the country that has been trained for this type of work. And it is safe to say that the more dogs like him, the better.
Such training comes at a cost of around $10,000 and can take four to six months before the pooch is proficient in his duties. Well worth the cost in my opinion. As crimes against children only continue to rise into the digital age, we can only hope that law enforcement continues with efforts like this to combat them.
Had you ever heard of a hard drive sniffing police dog before? Do you think this is a good way to help the police find the evidence they need to convict such horrible criminals? Please leave your comments and share this story with your family and friends.
