Bomb-sniffing Central Intelligence Agency dog fired for not sniffing bombs
Окт 20 2017
When Lulu, a Labrador retriever, first showed signs that she wasn't interested in detecting explosive odours, her handlers and trainers put it down to a bad day or two, but it soon became obvious it was more than that. Even when they could motivate her with food and play to search, she was clearly not enjoying herself any longer.
For the dogs that don't make it through the Central Intelligence Agency's explosive detectiontraining program, there's still a full life to be lived-just not serving the public. This definitely applies in their puppy classes. The announcement went on to say they had to make a hard decision as to what is best for Lulu and that decision was to drop her from the explosive detectiontraining program.
Although she attended a number of the agency's puppytraining classes, where she would be rewarded for sniffing out the risky explosives, she soon made it clear... this sort of thing really wasn't her cup of tea.
Puppies in the program, like human students in the classrooms, can have good and bad days when learning something new.
It's not easy to get chosen to go to the CIA's exclusive explosive detection school.
Lulu's replacement will join Suni, Heide, Freya, Nicola and Indigo on the training programme.
The tweet announcing the decision to stop Lulu'straining has been liked more than 3,000 times, with many Twitter users praising the force. The CIA reports Lulu is now playing with her handler's kids and sniffing for bunnies and squirrels in the yard instead of ferreting out explosives.
