This Dog’s Nose Saves Bees

Klinker is a one-of-a-kind dog. She’s the only dog in the U.S. certified to detect a damaging bacteria in beehives.

Along with her handler, Bill Troup, she inspects up to a thousand honeybee colonies a day for the contagious and lethal bacteria called American foulbrood.
