A Labrador Retriever named Saydee recently completed training, and now she's able to detect illegally caught fish. She made her for bust: 2 men in Bridgeport, Ct., had taken undersized striped bass.

RENEE MONTAGNE, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Renee Montagne. Dog's man's best friend unless that man is a fisherman. Police from Connecticut's Department of Energy and Environmental Protection spotted a couple of guys along a river in Milford and stopped to make sure they weren't up to anything fishy. Nope, they said, haven't caught anything. Enter Saydee, a fish-sniffing Labrador retriever who detected two undersized striped bass hidden under a rock. It was the dog's first catch and the men were cited and released. It's MORNING EDITION.
