Sniffer Dogs to be Retrained After Practicing on Talcum Powder Instead of Cocaine

Police in the Australian state of Victoria are conducting an investigation after it was discovered that sniffer dogs had been trained on talcum powder samples, with the original cocaine samples having been omitted due to an administrative error.

"I'm sure our dogs have got very soft, nice smelling noses at the moment, but they are in fact trained in detecting talcum powder so that means that they will have to be re-trained in detecting cocaine." said Police Assistant Commissioner Paul Evans.
