Foxhounds have excellent tracking abilities and the three dogs are being trained to ignore animal spoor in favour of their human quarry.

Noted, would have thought blood hounds would be more reliable, but wish them luck.

Ah, the wonders of dogs. If only the dogs could help serve justice by giving those poachers what they really deserve;still, I do hope poachers are more readily found and given the maximum punishments possible.

Little Fox Hound is good for tracking in deed, not too good if running into
an armed poacher. A Ridgeback is my prefered choice.

Thank you for the article. If dogs can be taught to sniff out poachers, that's ať good beginning.
