60 Minutes: Sniffing For Bombs

For 60 Minutes, Lara Logan talked about the use of bomb-sniffing dogs in the aftermath of the Boston bombings. Dogs cleared the area twice earlier in the day, according to authorities. Logan said that Belgian Malinois dogs are being used more than ever to detect bombs, since 9/11.

    Ralph. Appropriately named as that was my first reaction to your pita inspired comment. The only point you mentioned was jumping out of a plane which was the very first event in the story. That one scene was obviously enough to inspire your knee-jerk reaction of how do they know The dog wants to do it. Had you bothered to watch the whole piece your own question would have been answered. The dogs are given choices, they make their own decision whether to fulfill or abort an action. If the dog falters at any one of the preparation test he or she will not be moved onto the next station. At every point the dog can refuse. That is what makes the stock special. Just like the men that handle them, not your typical stay at home and wine about fur coats and what a dog thinks kind of guy. The constant observation of the dog on it’s handler further supports that the animal is doing exactly what it wants to do. I could go on for volumes but I will not as you are obviously intellectually ill-equipped to deal with the magnitude of today’s problems, the measures that have to be taken to keep undeserving citizens like you safe, or the animal psychology required to communicate with and tap into the incredible skill set these animals possess. Sorry to impose on your time, go back to painting “four more years” signs for Obama now.

    Then why were more Labs used after the Boston Bombing? Why is there a picture of a GERMAN SHEPHERD if it’s ‘exclusively’ Malinois? I swear, Malinois lovers are way over their heads.

    I just finished reading Ritland’s book and have been doing research on the history of animals in warfare for years now. I can say with confidence that these animals being utilized by various military groups are extremely well-cared for and 100% willing when it comes to all aspects of their work. They are trained to do things like being taken in a handler’s arms and jumping out of a helicopter. Any dog that cannot be acclimated to this kind of work would not be a part of the SOF team. Ritland loves these animals and anyone accusing him of animal abuse has thier head up their ass. Read a bit and get the facts before you shoot off your month or spill your idiocy on the computer screen.
