"Israeli prison guards are being trained to understand dog language so they can tell the difference between barks.I always knew Jews had a talent for languages.
"Scientific analysis has shown dogs bark differently depending on what they have seen, from a prisoner escaping to a stray cat in the yard.
"According to Israeli paper Jedijot Achronot (sic), the training of the guards to understand the language of dogs is being carried out by a system that electronically analyses the guard dogs' bark in each prison... The idea is that guards on patrol will soon learn to tell when a bark should be acted upon."
