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
