Awards for pirated DVD nabbing dogs


Two dogs trained to sniff out DVDs received medals from the Malaysian government for a five-month campaign that crippled movie pirates.

Lucky and Flo, black Labradors trained to detect the chemicals used in making DVDs, were the first animals to receive the outstanding service awards for finding discs stockpiled by pirates.
The canine campaign led to 26 arrests and seizures of illegal discs worth over $6 million.
