4. MN: Zeebz found in Thunder Lake (Cass County).
> A lake property owner contacted the DNR in late Oct after finding zebra mussels on a boat lift being removed from the water for the season. A subsequent DNR shoreline search did not reveal additional zebra mussels. Two DNR K9s trained to detect zebra mussels were brought in, with the cooperation of lake property owners, to search lake properties and equipment. K9s Storm and Brady, and their conservation officer handlers Hannah Mishler and Julie Siems, checked about 20 properties and 50 pieces of equipment. They found four zebra mussels attached to equipment adjacent to the site of the original report.
Yup, mussel-sniffing dogs are a real thing! Gotta assume this one’s name is “Snoop Dog:”
