Drug Interdiction Donkeys

The Sheriff's Office recently acquired 2 new drug sniffing donkeys.
Help us welcome the newest members of the Twin Falls County Sheriff's Office - Ruby and Havoc!

Ruby and Havoc are certified drug sniffing donkeys assigned to our Patrol Section. Known for their gentle disposition, Sheriff Carter and his wife Deneice are helping them get started with their first tour of duty with this new program.

This week Sheriff Carter will work at selecting the personnel to handle both Ruby and Havoc as they work towards our new donkey drug detection and interdiction program. Donkeys are known for the keen sense of smell, on par with German Shepherds and Blood Hounds, but they can at times also be very stubborn.

Please join us in welcoming these two newest members of the Sheriff's Office!

Unicorn Seized by BCSO Mounted Patrol

In a daring early morning operation, BCSO’s Organized Crime and Mounted Patrol Units raided a cartel drug lab hidden in the mountains off of Green Mountain Road in Northern Bexar County. In addition to drugs, guns, and cash, investigators rescued a unicorn which appears to have been smuggled into the country illegally by the infamous “Los Alacranes” drug cartel. Sheriff Salazar said the unicorn may be converted to agency use with the BCSO Mounted Patrol. Sheriff Salazar said of the seized animal “We are fortunate to have rescued this unicorn, nicknamed “April”, from these foolish criminals on this 1st day of April.”

In addition to the sad things some humans do to one another, it also saddens us the things people do to animals.

Thankfully, when we’re able to help those in need—be it two-legged or four—we love to do it.

Take this injured goose for example. Boulder Police Animal Protection officers have been working to capture him after receiving reports of a goose shot by an arrow starting March 5.

Despite his serious injury, the goose has been quite mobile, able to walk, swim and fly, making his rescue extremely difficult. But four officers worked together yesterday afternoon to corral him with food and nets to safely catch him. They then carefully used bolt cutters to remove part of the arrow.

Greenwood Wildlife Rehabilitation Center , located in Longmont, helped us out by making arrangements for the goose to be transported to Planned Pethood International where he will undergo surgery to have the arrow removed and hopefully return to a normal goosey life.

If anyone has any information about how this goose was injured, they’re asked to please call Dispatch at 303-441-3333.

The Hamilton County Sheriffs Office received a call from Hamilton County Parks and Recreation stating they had a large rodent on the loose in one of their buildings.

Animal Control Deputy Sanford responded immediately and was able to locate and secure the animal without incident.

The squirrel was determined to be indigenous to the area and healthy; so it was trespassed from the building and released back into the wild.

This is APD Academy Class 59. In May, these 29 men and women will become your newest Arlington Police officers. And they would REALLY love it if someone could give their new pal Amos, a 6-year-old Terrier / Pit Bull mix, a loving home!!

If you'd like to give Amos a "furever" home, you can visit him at Arlington Animal Services, which is located at 1000 SE Green Oaks Blvd. His adoption fees are only $25!!

Meet Bolt! From being tied up to a tree during a hurricane, to becoming a Police K-9, Bolt’s story is remarkable!

In August 2020, with Hurricane Laura bearing down on the coast of Louisiana, someone decided to tie Bolt to a tree, and leave him to survive on his own. A neighbor saw him, saved him, and took him to a shelter. Eventually TRU Rescue, based in Phoenix, Maryland, saved Bolt and brought him to Maryland and into the foster home of Amanda, the daughter of a Harford County Sheriff’s Office deputy.

That September, the Sheriff’s Office began searching for a new K-9 for our Crime Suppression Unit. Bolt’s foster mom thought he could make it as a police K-9, and after initial tests, HCSO trainers agreed it may be possible.

By October, the Agency adopted Bolt, and in November he started training with Senior Deputy Andrew Sampson.

Bolt excelled in his training and by February was certified as a Narcotics Detection Dog and hit the streets. Within just two days he had his first successful drug find on a traffic stop!

Bolt is the first dog rescued by the Sheriff’s Office in nearly 30 years! It was a highly unusual set of circumstances that led to Bolt becoming a Police K9, but we sure are glad he is here!

We’re so excited to have Bolt join our team and very grateful to Christine Williams of TRU Rescue and Amanda, Bolt’s foster mom, for making this possible!

NACA 2020 - HUMANE LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICER OF THE YEAR - Recipient - Officer Daniel Achuff

This award is given to an individual that has been directly involved in the animal care and control profession for a minimum of five years. Recipients may be nominated for a single outstanding achievement in animal one of the three specific groups, or long-term exceptional performance in the animal care and control field.

Officer Achuff is a criminal justice graduate and is a member of the Army National Guard. Officer Achuff holds a 95% prosecution rate in court and has shown incredible passion to the animals in the community he is sworn to protect.

My sweet pup remembered her rescuer and both Daniel and my Shepherd shared a sweet hug. There’s an obvious bond that Daniel has to every pet he rescues. The warmth he displays is natural for him.

Yesterday, our first day shift of 2021, led us to an unruly passenger. Deputies located a possible wounded trumpeter swan that was sitting on the roadway. Deputy Hanson was able to safely capture the creature and transport it to a safe location along the river where it was released into open water. Most of the time when we give rides to a place other than jail it's appreciated. Photo evidence proves that was not the case this time...

Here's something on the lighter side. Enjoy!

Tarrant County deputies never know who they might find hanging around on deep nights. In this short video, Deputy Brogdon came across a young deer that was a little short on it's high jump.

All turned out OK. This young one (the deer, not the deputy) was tired, but not seriously injured.

From Detroit Pit Crew Rescue, they are one of the best! Please vote for DPD Officer Eric McCombs to win!! 🐾TIME TO VOTE🐾 Smith is one of the many dogs who has benefitted from DPD Officer McCombs passion for poor dogs that need a helping hand. Smith was rescued from the streets of Detroit in horrible condition with significant injuries to his paws which made it necessary for him to spend 5 days at an emergency Veterinary hospital. Officer McCombs spent part of his Christmas holiday sitting with Smith at the Veterinary hospital, loving on him and reassuring him that his life would be better. Rescuing a dog and being a good role model doesn't end the day a dog is rescued, that's only the beginning. Please vote for Officer McCombs by clicking on https://www.collinrosememorial.org/2020finalists. **Votes can be made by each person one time per day until Friday February 6th🐾🐾
