Our Wildlife Service Dogs are trained for wildlife forensics
Cold Nose Investigators®
Hair from the mountain lion was located by our wildlife service dog near the area where the mountain lions had been bedded down.
Our K9s located two mountain lion bedding areas in the duff under low branches of a pine tree. The size of the bedding area helped us to identify that we were dealing with a female mountain lion and a kitten. There was evidence of random mountain lion hair in the beds.
The K9s located very fresh mountain lion scat; the scat contained green mucus on the outside and had a very strong unpleasant odor. The scat was close to 8 1/2" long and just over 1" wide.
