Northern Utah police have a new weapon to fight crime. One of the most conservative states in the country and a state known best for its conservative Mormon population, and it’s underground polygamist society, Utah now has a dog said to be able to sniff out illegal porn according to the Associated Press.  A porn sniffing dog.

Weber county has a  17 month old black lab named URL who police say is a real life horn dog able to sniff out electronic devices that store porn.  Does “porn” have its’ own scent? Well not in this context, but URL is one of only a few dogs in the whole country able to sniff out devices such as flash drives, simm cards, hard drives and iPads. URL is trained to smell the chemical components unique to photo and video storage.

URL learned from the same trainer as “Bear,” the pup who busted ex-Subway pitchman and convicted sex offender Jared Fogle, after sniffing out a hidden thumb drive packed with child pornography.
