Sniffer Dog Deployed at BRT Tiger Reserve

The forest department has deployed a trained sniffer dog, Jhansi. The main purpose is to take the dog’s help to fight the crime in Biligiri Ranganathaswamy Temple (BRT) Tiger Reserve in Chamarajnagar district. The department has deployed the German Shepherd on the lines of Bandipur Tiger Reserve to protect wildlife from poachers. Jhansi will be engaged in protecting wildlife, anti-poaching duties, and preventing timber smuggling.

The forest department introduced Jhansi to the tiger reserve after she underwent seven months of rigorous training in Chandigarh, with the Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP).

BRT Tiger Reserve project director and Deputy Conservator of forest G Santhoshkumar said the forest department had deployed Jhansi following the support and help rendered by TRAFFIC India, a part of the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), as a sniffer dog help check forest crimes.

Rana, a German Shepherd, was deployed by the forest department in Bandipur Tiger Reserve. It was instrumental in solving several crucial forest crimes since 2015. Hence the BRT Tiger Reserve decided to deploy Jhansi.
