Police at a guard post in Russia’s Stavropol region near the Caspy Sea recruited the Rusik cat to fight poachers, poachers and sturgeon traders. Sturgeon is a fish with excellent eggs and is in danger of extinction, so it is very important to prevent poaching.
The pretty cat Rusik was originally a stray cat and was adopted by the police. After being adopted, police discovered they were keeping sturgeons – wherever evidence of theft was discovered and eaten by Rusik. They immediately thought of taking advantage of this ability to track down the smugglers. Rusik’s abilities are so great that the old police dog retired early.
