Mack is a German Shepherd/Belgian Malinois mix imported from Hungary. He and his handler, Lt. Phil Mohs, are trained to assist conservation officers throughout the state with:
- Zebra Mussel detection
- Wildlife detection
- Evidence recovery
- Tracking of persons
- Criminal apprehension
- Performing educational demonstrations
The use of specially trained dogs increases the state's abilities to detect zebra mussels, wildlife violations, find trespassers and catch poachers.
