No more US sniffer dogs to Egypt, Jordan after deaths

No more US sniffer dogs to Egypt, Jordan after deathsThe United States has temporarily stopped sending bomb detecting sniffer dogs to Jordan and Egypt after several of the animals died due to what US officials say was lack of care. “Any death of a canine in the field is an extremely sad event and we will take every measure possible to prevent this from happening in the future,” a US State Department official told reporters on Monday. The State Department’s own independent Office of Inspector General (OIG) began looking into the well-being of the animals after reports of canine mistreatment surfaced in mid-2017.
