Police dog finds missing mum and baby on first shift

5 August 2020

Those incredibly 'unreliable' DOGS............again! - Page 13 _1138110

Newly-licensed Dyfed-Powys Police dog Max discovered the pair on the edge of a ravine in a remote part of Powys on Saturday.

The mother and her one-year-old had not been seen for two days and had spent the night outdoors.

Led by the two-year-old German Shepherd cross who joined the force in February, handler PC Peter Lloyd spotted the woman waving for help at 13:30 BST.

They were helped down and checked over by a mountain rescue doctor and the ambulance service.

Insp Jonathan Rees-Jones said: "The woman had not been seen or spoken to for two days, which was out of character, and her phone wasn't working, so naturally concern for her safety was high."

He said the woman's car had been found on a mountain road which gave officers a location to search from, but there was still "a vast area to cover given the amount of time she had been missing".

"Despite only recently becoming licensed, and on his first operational shift, he immediately commenced an open area search," he said.

After an hour-and-a-half of searching involving Brecon Mountain Rescue Team, a National Police Air Service (NPAS) helicopter and a search expert, the mother and baby were found.

'Safe but cold'

"They were safe, but cold, and appeared to have been in the area for a significant amount of time," he said.

"I must give a special mention to PC Pete Lloyd and Max, who on their very first day since completing their training together covered a significant amount of mileage in the search, eventually locating them safe."

PC Lloyd said he was "really pleased", adding: "Max remained focussed throughout the long search and he proved invaluable."

Man's best friend..

Firefighter fosters Jack Russell dog he saved from flames


3 hours ago

Those incredibly 'unreliable' DOGS............again! - Page 13 _1139110

A dog that nearly died in a fire is being fostered by the firefighter who saved her.

Fire crews were called to a flat fire in Newham on 28 July and found a woman being treated outside by paramedics but learned her Jack Russell was missing.

Lead firefighter Jamie Trew found Millie lying apparently "lifeless" under a bed. She was given oxygen and water and came to after 10 minutes.

Her owner has agreed Mr Trew will look after Millie while the owner recovers.

Those incredibly 'unreliable' DOGS............again! - Page 13 _1139111

Firefighters from Ilford Station were called at about 21:50 BST to a ground floor flat in Forest View Road.

Wearing breathing apparatus they searched for Millie in the bedroom and discovered her apparently lifeless body when they lifted up the bed.
'A lovely ending'

Station officer Dean Ivil, who was at the scene, said: "After 10 minutes she showed signs of life and she eventually regained consciousness enough to start walking and was taken to the local emergency vet.

"After a short stay there, her owner has agreed she can be fostered and she is now happily staying with leading firefighter Jamie Trew who found her."

"It's a lovely ending for what could have been a tragic story. If her owner decides it's best, Millie has a forever home with Jamie and his family," he added.

Part of the bedroom was damaged in the fire, which was under control within 40 minutes.

The cause of the fire is still being investigated.

Madeiran racing pigeon travels 2,222 kms … straight into bucket of paint

By
 Natasha Donn
 -
19th August 2020



Her rescuers in Devon are calling her ‘Splashes’, but to her owner in Madeira she is ‘Gloria’.
This is the extraordinary story of a racing pigeon who travelled 2,222 kms after ‘getting lost’ in a competition at sea off Porto Santo on July 4.
The “Trenton x Blue Bar” bird was found a little over a month later, in a bucket of yellow paint in Plymouth, UK.
She “was in a bit of a sorry state”, says 4th generation ‘fancier’ Julie Cotton, a member of the Plymouth Racing Pigeon Club.
Julie is now trying to get Gloria/ Splashes “back to health” and somehow find a way of returning her to owner André Andrade.
She explains it was her nieces and nephews who came up with the name ‘Splashes’, on account of how Gloria was found (see image).   Writing over Facebook, amazed owner André said: “There are some incredible things that leave us amazed by racing pigeons’ capacity to survive…”
André believes Gloria will have travelled the massive distance almost certainly by hitching a ride on a ship (or possibly series of ships).  How she ended up in the bucket of yellow paint however is not quite so obvious.
Says Julie, she is a young bird, so there is no way she could possibly find her way back, even if she was fit to fly, which Julie – who was ‘raised in pigeon clubs’ – insists that she isn’t.
If André can’t find a way of getting Gloria home, she will end up “staying locally” in Devon, we’re told, and hopefully steer clear of buckets of paint.

Military dog Kuno to receive UK's highest honour for animals

Three-year-old Belgian shepherd malinois saved lives by tackling an al-Qaida gunman

A retired British military dog is to receive a medal for valour after he was injured in action while tackling an al-Qaida gunman.

Kuno will receive the PDSA Dickin Medal in a virtual ceremony in November, giving him the highest honour for military animal valour.

The three-year-old Belgian shepherd malinois and his handler were deployed with the Royal Navy’s Special Boat Service in a raid on a compound during a foreign mission in 2019 when they came under attack.

Under grenade and machine-gun fire from an insurgent, Kuno tackled the gunman, allowing the mission to be completed successfully.

Kuno was hit by bullets in both back legs during the assault, with part of one limb having to be amputated before he was flown back to the UK.

He then became the first UK military working dog to be fitted with custom-made prosthetic limbs.

The defence secretary, Ben Wallace, said: “Without Kuno, the course of this operation could have been very different, and it’s clear he saved the lives of British personnel that day.

“Kuno’s story reminds us not only of the dedicated service of our soldiers and military dogs, but also the great care that the UK armed forces provide to the animals that serve alongside them.”

Kuno will become the 72nd recipient of the Dickin Medal, with previous honours going to 34 dogs, 32 second world war messenger pigeons, four horses, and one cat.

The PDSA’s director-general, Jan McLoughlin, said: “Kuno’s heroic actions undoubtedly changed the course of the mission and saved lives.

“He took on the enemy without fear or hesitation, never faltering from his duty despite being seriously injured.

“For his bravery and devotion to duty, he is a thoroughly deserving recipient of the PDSA Dickin Medal and we look forward to formally presenting his award later this year.”

Virginia Court of Appeals Affirmed the Convictions Against Braulio Castillo

Those incredibly 'unreliable' DOGS............again! - Page 13 Document?documentID=152002
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
June 20, 2019


In a sixty-six page published opinion, the Court repeatedly stressed that the evidence of his guilt was overwhelming.  The defense alleged ten separate assignments of error in the case and the Court rejected each.
"The opinion is a significant one for the Commonwealth," said Chief Deputy Commonwealth's Attorney Nicole Wittmann, who was the lead trial attorney.  "The Court was very thorough in its analysis, addressing each issue of appeal.  Additionally, of particular significance was that the evidence related to the cadaver dog, an issue of first impression in Virginia, was found it to be proper and admissible."
The dog handler that deployed the victim recovery dogs, Martin Grime, is a world-wide renowned expert in the field of cadaver dogs.  He and his first cadaver dog Eddie and his blood detection dog Keela were deployed to Portugal by the British Government when Madeline McCann disappeared. You can presently see Mr. Grime on the Netflix show, “What happened to Madeline” as he uses them to help investigate the case.
Mr. Grime was hired by the FBI to come to America and help them establish a cadaver dog program.  Mr. Grime brought his two dogs, Morse the cadaver dog, and Keela the blood detection dog, to the Castillo home seventeen days after her body was located. Morse alerted to the basement bathroom where Mrs. Castillo was found, and also to the foot of her bed in the master bedroom. 
The cadaver dog testimony was presented at trial so the jury could consider whether the victim had been killed in her bedroom and then moved to the bathroom. The defendant continuously alleged throughout the course of the trial that Mrs. Castillo committed suicide. The cadaver dog evidence helped the Commonwealth show that this defense was not possible.
After being informed of the Court of Appeals decision, Martin Grime stated that the Commonwealth’s Attorney’s Office “support for our search philosophy and strategy ensured that all relevant forensic intelligence was secured and helped solve the case. It is that sort of forward thinking and acceptance of science and support of research that makes your team a cut above the rest.”
In addition to the cadaver dog evidence, the Commonwealth presented expert testimony from the Medical Examiner, a cell phone expert, and several scientists related to DNA recovered.

A rat this time:

Boom crown rat: Magawa the bomb disposal rodent is awarded animal George Cross after discovering dozens of explosive devices


  • Bomb disposal rat Magawa scratches the top of the ground when he detects a landmine which alerts handlers 

  • He can search tennis court size area in 30 minutes which can take a human and metal detector up to four days

  • Magawa has been formally recognised for his work and been presented with a miniature PDSA Gold Medal 



https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8769677/Boom-crown-rat-Magawa-bomb-disposal-rodent-awarded-animal-George-Cross.html

I'd have named him Geldof, the Boom Crown rat  titter
