Brock McArdle and his working wildlife K-9 Cash gave a great presentation on April 11th for Mountain Gals and community members. Brock explained how Colorado Parks and Wildlife K-9 program began a few years ago. CPW is implementing and evaluating the use of highly trained dogs to assist wildlife managers in the protection and management of Colorado's diverse wildlife species. The duties of the two trained K-9s (Sci and Cash) include aiding wildlife officers in gaining public compliance with wildlife laws, conducting biological field surveys for species of conservation concern (such as boreal toads and black-footed ferrets) and providing educational programs to members of the public to increase awareness of natural resources. The expense to train and maintain the two K-9s in the project can total approximately $1,500 per dog.
