Karelian Bear Dog
Washington State Fish and Wildlife Wildlife Biologist Rich Beausoleil gets a kiss from his 10 1/2 year old Karelian Bear Dog Cash before the 4th Annual Karelian Bear Dog 5K run and walk event benefiting the Washington state Department of Fish and Wildlife’s bear dog program at Mirabeau Park in Spokane Valley, Wash., Saturday, May 7, 2016.

Here’s a photo of Washington state Fish & Wildlife Biologist Rich Beausoleil and his Karelian Bear Dog Cash for the Inlander. The dogs, from Finland, are fearless and good for chasing bears and other potentially dangerous wildlife away from human habitats or for trap and release. They also help find poachers and are involved in search and rescue missions of all sorts. With all of the energy they exhibit, the dogs are very gentle around people. http://www.inlander.com/spokane/bear-aware/Content?oid=2771464
