The first class of wildlife detector dogs will soon be stationed at ports of entry around the country including one right here in the bluegrass state.

The dogs and their handlers have just finished training at the US Department of Agriculture's National Detector Dog Training Center to search for things like elephant ivory and rhinoceros horn as part of the U.S. government's push to cut down on trade of items from "dangerously threatened" animals.

Now, the teams will be stationed in Louisville as well as cities like Miami, Los Angeles, and Chicago where the items are most likely to come into the country.

Louisville is being targeted because it is home to UPS' worldwide air hub.
