Earlier in July, DWR Conservation officers stopped 254 vehicles near Strawberry Reservoir. They issued 30 citations and seized 47 fish that were taken illegally. The operation included 14 officers and a black Lab named Cruz.
DWR K-9 Officer, Josh Carver has an 82-pound chocolate Lab that is with him 24-7. Carver’s dog, Carlo wasn’t involved in the Strawberry Reservoir fish operation, but he’s had success in other fish and wildlife recovery operations. He also can track people which can have several applications for the DWR, law enforcement and search and rescue.
