ANSWER - Tuesday Trivia: Animals

What animal is used to detect gas leaks in pipelines in southern California and Arizona?

Turkey buzzards. The utility company adds an odor to its gas lines similar to that of a female turkey buzzard ready to mate. When there's a break in a gas line, repair crews look for a cluster of aroused male turkey buzzards to pinpoint the trouble spot.
