Warden Jenna Reed of Newport and her German Shepherd K9 partner named Moose were recently certified as the state’s newest of four K9 game warden units. Reed and K9 Officer Moose are certified in tracking and evidence recovery. Moose will be deployed for everything from tracking a suspect who has run from law enforcement, to finding a missing child, to recovering a shell casing in the grass from a bullet fired at a deer illegally.
“Moose is both a partner and a companion,” said Reed. “I’m excited to start putting him to work with me in the field.”
