A much-loved moggy who went missing when the car he was in was stolen has been reunited with his owners.

Members of the public are turning pet detective to solve animal crimes

For many, the title “pet detective” brings to mind Ace Ventura, the fictional character driven by a desire to protect animals from human mistreatment – albeit in a comic fashion. But Ventura’s passion for saving animals is not just something out of the movies. Some real life people are devoting endless personal time and resources to solving cases involving animals, too.

Animals and pets are important parts of our lives and losing one is a terrible ordeal. Many of us form such intense emotional attachments to pets that they are viewed as members of our family. When a pet goes missing from their home, people often describe it as like losing a child.

In such instances, some owners turn to a pet detective – many of whom who work for little or no money. Despite coming from diverse backgrounds, often with little or no investigatory experience, these volunteers share a simple, common desire: to

Hai perso il tuo amico? Che sia un cane o un gatto, poco importa. I pet detective ti aiutano a ritrovarlo. Nata negli Usa, questa figura si prepara a sbarcare in Piemonte. A far nascere il progetto, a Bergamo, è stato Andrea Granelli, educatore cinofilo. Dopo aver seguito corsi in America è tornato in Italia e ha aperto una scuola. Entro un mese formerà una squadra che sarà presente su Torino. “Abbiamo già una base sul basso Piemonte – spiega Dario Maffioli, project manager di Pet Detective – ma poco per volta stiamo estendendo i nostri servizi”. Di fatto aiutano i proprietari a ritrovare il loro amico.

Per farlo usano le stesse tecniche utilizzate dalla polizia. In primis, viene fatto un profilo dell’animale. “Perché – aggiunge Maffioli – ogni soggetto ha caratteristiche precise.E c’è una bella differenza tra il comportamento che tiene un cane in fuga, o di un gatto. Poi

Be proactive: Detective offers tips on protecting children from online predators

In May, Detective Jeff Rich of Plano Police’s Criminal Investigation Division was instrumental in cracking a child pornography sting. Operation Medusa resulted in 15 arrests ranging from promotion of child pornography to online solicitation of a minor.

On Aug. 11, the Collin County Sheriff’s Department arrested Kenneth Bailey for online solicitation of a minor, yet another link to the Medusa web. As children head back to school, and schedules begin to fill up, Det. Rich still advises parents and students to keep internet safety in the forefront of their minds.

“Our children’s lives are so different than what our lives were like. A lot of parents like to bury their heads in the sand and not get involved or talk about it because they don’t understand it,” Rich said. “So that’s what our presentations typically do. We try to expose the parents to some of the things that the
