Save the (Killer) Whales!

I just read this interesting article in the New York Times about a black Lab mix named Tucker with a rather unique talent. This pooch has a nose for sniffing out orca (aka killer whales) poop and is using this skill to help scientists track these intrepid hunters off the coast of San Juan Island. The Pacific North West is a hotbed for whale watching and these scientists are studying the effects of the industry on the killer whale.
