Alsatian police dogs keep tight hold of their quarry in annual trials at Crystal Palace.
Item title reads - Alsatian police dogs exhibit almost uncanny skill in "speaking" - "tracking" and "holding" their quarry in 2nd Annual Trials. Crystal Palace, London.
M/S of the dogs sat down in a line with men holding their leads, the camera pans slowly across them all. L/S as one runs around a bush then drags out the man hiding behind it, he is wearing a big coat for protection. The dog's trainer leads the man away, he tries to run off but the dog drags him back. The dog lies down, the men continue but the 'criminal' tries to assault the officer and get away again, the dog chases him and grabs his arm. C/U of the dog's face as it pants.
Note: an orange tinted version exists.
