Anirban Chowdhury, TT, Dec 22, 2017, Alipurduar: Sniffer dogs, long used on the crime trail, are now being deployed to keep jungles safe from poachers and animal parts smugglers in Bengal.

Three such dogs have been handed over to forest department recently, one each for the tiger reserve of the Sunderbans in south Bengal, and the Mahananda Wildlife Sanctuary and the Buxa Tiger Reserve in north Bengal.

On Thursday, Limsi (German Shepherd for the Mahananda forests also called Sukna) and Karim (Belgian Malinois for the Buxa reserve) reached north Bengal.

"Two sniffer dogs have reached north Bengal. They will help us a lot in preventing poaching and animal parts smuggling, besides checking tree felling," said Ujjwal Ghosh, chief conservator of forests (wildlife), north Bengal. Another officer said they are planning to bring four more dogs for other forests in the state.

At Buxa, foresters Suvendu Roy and Johny Sharma will look after Karim. Amit Subba and Pemba Lepcha will take care of Limsi in Sukna. The dogs eat all kinds of vegetables and milk and, once a day, they are given 400gm of meat. Separate shelters have been constructed for them. The dogs were put on duty from Thursday.
