Wardens from a jail in the desert using a sniffer snake to track down a fugitive.
The Scottish Word:

Rinagate.

That’s the benefit o sniffer snakes oer yer bludhoons, ye dinni need tae kert aroond heavy manacles.

Ye jist fling the snake at yer miscreant ahn it taigles him up an it diz aw the restraining leavin oorsel’s free tae tak the rinagate back tae jile.

Translation:

rinagate: runaway, fugitive.

That’s the benefit of sniffer snakes over your bloodhounds, you don’t need to carry around heavy manacles.

You just fling the snake at your miscreant and it tangles him up and it does all the restraining leaving us free to take the fugitive straight back to jail.
