Utah is ramping up its state-wide war on porn with the recruitment of a sniffer dog that has been trained to uncover pornography.

Named Url, prounced Earl, this canine recruitment is the result of Utah’s decision, last April, to pass a resolution making all pornography “a public health hazard leading to a broad spectrum of individual and public health impacts and societal harm.”

Url is one of nine porn sniffing dogs recruited by the Weber County Sheriff’s Office.

Each dog is a certified electronic detection K-9, trained to essentially sniff out electronic equipment like cameras and other video-related devices.

But while Url and his canine squad are more than capable of uncovering porn film sets, computers and other elicit materials, trainers are keen to stress the point that the pooches cannot literally sniff out pornographic images.

Instead, they have been trained to sniff out the unique chemical compounds found in certain electronics like mobile phones, external hard drives, tablets, iPads and USB sticks.

All of which makes them useful in not only hunting down porn in Utah but also uncovering terrorism plots, narcotics dealers, financial crime and child potn.

Url has certainly got his work cut out for him too with the ED K-9 set to be used to not only sniff out porn-related electronics but any mobile phones that may have been smuggled into prison in Utah.

Somebody give that dog a biscuit.
