Two black Labradors named Lucky and Flo will be doing their bit to fight the good fight against movie and music piracy by identifying DVDs among other items of cargo. So far in tests, the plucky hounds have been successful in locating packages and parcels containing DVDs at Stansted Airport. And just when you thought airports couldn’t get any more annoying…
Given the problems that drugs and their trafficking cause society in general, one might be forgiven for thinking that dynamic duo Lucky and Flo could be better employed in the hunt for smuggled narcotics, but FACT is hailing their successful training as a true victory.
"This is the first time dogs have been used anywhere in the world to search for counterfeit DVDs and the results were amazing", gushed FACT director general Raymond Leinster. "With the cooperation and assistance of FedEx and Customs we were able to properly test the dogs in a real life situation and prove that they can work in a busy airport environment."
