Here’s a remarkable story from British Columbia, Canada, where a 66-year-old woman disappeared on July 30th. When a motorcyclist found the woman’s car on a remote logging road, it was time to call in police dog Boomer, along with his handler Constable Wurzinger, of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP). And, sure enough, Boomer was the hero:
“With no track or scent detected near her car, Boomer and Wurzinger and the pilot from Air 8 set out searching the extensive array of logging roads,” the press release says. “Approximately 5 hours later Boomer straightened, alerting his handler to a possible scent of the missing woman. Constable Wurzinger climbed over a nearby embankment and miraculously, the missing female was spotted lying at the base of the berm. In obvious discomfort and barely able to speak, the female managed to reach out, grab the officers hand and whisper ‘thank you’ over and over again.”
Thanks to Boomer’s dedication, his ability to concentrate for hours at a time, and his incredible nose, a life was saved and a family can rest easy. Bravo, Boomer!
