Episode Summary: Sean is in the Lake District taking a look at some of the jobs working animals do. He joins Cockermouth mountain rescue team to see search and rescue dogs in action, and he meets 15-week-old Jura, a border collie pup learning the ropes from the older dogs. Then he's off to see George Newton and his two Dales ponies, Charlie and George. They work the forests more
...for timber as they're able to get to places that normal machinery can't. But Sean is surprised to find that the biggest job is being done by the smallest creatures, beetles. Katy Dainton and her team at Forestry England are using a predatory beetle to attack the destructive spruce bark beetle that threatens thousands of trees in commercial plantations. We'll also be going back through the archives to take another look at other working animals we've featured, including some laid-back donkeys Matt spent time with on the Isle of Wight, the runner ducks that gave Anita the run-around in Norfolk, and the alpacas sprinkling a little joy with Adam in care homes.
