Faced with a huge increase in elephants being killed for their tusks, governments and wildlife groups have been looking for new ways to stem the massacre. Africa’s oldest national park on Monday said it had begun using a new tool to track down poachers: bloodhounds.
While the suspects in one killing got away, Virunga National Park said its first use of the dogs proved that tracking the scent of the tusks can work.
“We are extremely pleased with the outcome,” Emmanuel de Merode, chief warden at Virunga said after the dogs led rangers to the suspected poachers in a nearby fishing village. “After a year of intensive training, both the hounds and the rangers proved to be a very effective weapon.”
