Lt. Mohs/K9 Mack

handler and dog

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.
