Colombian Drug Cartel Puts Bounty On Police’s Narcotics Dog

31 July 2018

A Colombian drug cartel has put a price on the head of a drug-sniffing dog, after she found nearly 10 tonnes of the gang's cocaine.

In 2012, the gang reportedly offered $500 to those who killed a police officer, and offered more if the cop worked for the country's counternarcotics force. She is usually accompanied by two armed guards.

Sombra was originally posted to various ports on Colombia's Atlantic coast, where smugglers sent speedboats loaded with drugs north to the United States or across the ocean to Europe.

President-elect Ivan Duque promised a tougher approach on coca production during his election campaign, with strategies including aerial spraying and drones. Sombra can be seen at work in the video below.

And the gang is offering a bounty of $70,000 for the canine's life, Colombia's national police said last week.

"Her sense of smell is far beyond that of other dogs, " Rojas said.

The illegal drugs belonged to the powerful Urabeños, also called the Gulf clan, run by Dairo Antonio Úsuga also known as Otoniel.

Rudy Giuliani: 'Collusion Is Not A Crime'
Rivera said Cohen was somewhat of a "consigliere" to Trump , in that he was the "one key person we tell all of our life story to". Giuliani said Cohen has claimed those present when Trump was informed about the meeting included Trump Jr., Kushner and others.

Her talent for sniffing out drugs has led to the capture of at least 245 people and the seizure of 9 tons of cocaine from the powerful Urabeños gang in Colombia.

While Sombra is furry and friendly and fun, the death threats made against her are real-and show exactly how serious the drug war can be.

Sombra, which is Spanish for Shadow, has found almost 10 tons of the Urabenos' cocaine, which prompted the country's most powerful organized crime regime to put out a hit on the dog. Since her transfer to Bogota in January, the German shepherd has found thousands of pounds of the drug hidden in various boxes of wooden necklaces and sneakers. A few months ago, the tenacious hound sniffed out 77 kilos of cocaine placed deep inside an industrial machine.
