Have you ever wondered why border security is such an important thing? The reason is because some things can become invasive species should they successfully cross oceanic borders, which can be a really big problem when you’re trying to protect local species. So – what can you do to protect your local flora and fauna?
These Beagle pups actually serve as a line of defense! We all know that pups have a superior sense of smell, which means they can pick up hints of things we can’t possibly ever notice. Beagle pups in particular have an incredibly sensitive nose, thanks to their hunting heritage.
Combine this with their high intelligence and some training, and you have yourself a team of super efficient detectors! These pups can then sniff out all sorts of contraband stuff, so that potentially invasive species can be safely destroyed before it gets loose. So give these pups a salute the next time you see them – they’re doing an important job!
