(MARTINSVILLE) - Indiana Conservation Officers are training eight new K-9 officers at Morgan-Monroe State Forest near Martinsville.
The dogs and their handlers are trained in man-tracking, evidence recovery, searches and fish and wildlife detection.
DNR officials say the K-9 officers have proven to be a great asset to conservation officers with their lifesaving ability to locate people who have become lost in the outdoors.
All of the dogs are donated, many coming from shelters.
