Colombian Drug Traffickers Put A $70000 Bounty On A Police Dog

Sombra, a six-year-old German shepherd, has uncovered so much contraband that a major drug gang has put a bounty on her head.

The drug-sniffing dog is responsible for finding more than 2000kg of cocaine during her time with the National Police of Colombia, prompting the Urabenos, or Gulf Clan, to offer the bounty. She will now work in the capital city of Bogota as a drug-sniffing dog at the El Dorado International Airport.

Aside from Sombra's handler, Colombian anti-narcotics police have also provided her with armed guards while she works at the airport - an area that is supposedly out of the cartel's reach.

Colombia's soaring output of coca - the raw material of cocaine - is testing traditionally close relations with the United States. A recent White House report found the amount of land used to harvest the plant rose 11 percent in 2017, despite $10 billion in US counter-narcotics work.

President-elect Iván Duque is promising a tougher approach to speed up eradication with strategies that could include aerial spraying and the use of drones. But even with advanced technology, experts say on-the-ground detective work such as Sombra's is critical.

Some of Sombra's recent busts include uncovering over five tons of Gulf Clan cocaine destined for Europe and concealed in crates of bananas.

According to the National Post, Sombra's search skills have led to the seizure of more than ten tons of cocaine and the arrest of 245 people-so far.

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. Now, she's hanging out in the Bogotá global airport instead, where the Urabeños hopefully can't get to her. BBC says Sombra, which means Shadow in English, is also being accompanied by additional officers rather than just her handler.
