Dogs Trained to Track "Vapor Wake" from Terrorists Patrol Holidays

Macy's Thanksgiving Parade is ramping up security. This year, in addition to officers with "assault weapons and portable radiation detectors walking among the crowd" and "sharpshooters on rooftops", we will see a special group of scent dogs trained to detect explosives in large crowds. 

The NYPD will be using "Vapor Wake Dogs" to track "thermal plumes left behind in a person's wake," Paul Hammond, President of Vapor Wake Training Program VWK9 LLC, told Rolling Stone

This speciality training helps dogs become adept at avoiding the millions of distractions of large crowds and instead use their incredible sense of smell to hone in on explosive particles and firearm residue from terrorists who move through the crowd, allowing police and special agents to stop apprehend a suspect before a devastating event.

How the Eclipse Might Impact Animals

User Rating: 5 / 5

For millions of years, humans have been fascinated with lunar movement and on August 21, we all get to experience the wonder of a full solar eclipse. Full solar eclipses are rare - in fact the last time a full coast-to-coast total solar eclipse occurred was in 1918, according to CNN. Here in the United States, we're super lucky to see this event as it will only be visible in other countries as a partial eclipse.

But, what will our pets do to cope with this event? Should you expect any unusual behavior? The answer to that question is, “Maybe.” 

Our pets don't have the luxury of logic, so it's normal to wonder what they'll see and what they're thinking. We can't tell you for sure what's going on in their heads, but we can give you some data about past eclipses and the effect on animals.

Evacuation with Pets

The United States and others areas of the world have been faced with disasters everywhere. Massive wild fires are decimating Montana, Washington, Oregon, and California; the Southwest is recovering from deadly flooding due to Hurricane Harvey, and hurricane Irma is fast approaching Florida and the east coast with Jose and Katta are following on its heels. For that reason, we want to address a few questions we’ve gotten about evacuating with pets.

There have been far too many cases of animals being turned away from shelter during these disasters. This leaves the owners to abandon or board their pets to enter shelter, or venture back into the storm with their pets.
