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

  • This dog has made some powerful enemies

According to reports, the Urabeños drug gang, Colombia's most feared criminal organization, put the hit on Sombra after the 6-year-old pooch recently sniffed out almost 10 TONS of cocaine in 2 separate busts.

She's since been relocated to an airport in Bogotá, where, according to the news outlet, she's accompanied by extra security officers to ensure her safety.

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 illegal drugs belonged to the powerful Urabeños, also called the Gulf clan, run by Dairo Antonio Úsuga also known as Otoniel. Sombra or "Shadow" has sniffed out nearly 10 tons of drugs in more than 300 operations.


She is now the target of Colombia's most powerful and risky drug cartel.

Drug-sniffing German shepherd Sombra is the stuff of nightmares for a ruthless Colombian drug cartel. However, she is not totally safe just yet and for this reason, two armed guards transport her, backwards and forwards from her drug-sniffing shift in the airport in a van with tinted windows. According to Rojas, Sombra has an incredible sense of smell, beyond that of other sniffer dogs.

She is so darn good at uncovering tons of cocaine that the powerful Urabeños mafia wants her dead.

In a tweet, head of the national police force General Jorge Nieto said Sombra's work led to the capture of at least 245 people. She also found another delivery of coke hidden inside a machine. Sombra can be seen at work in the video below. With her neon reflective vest, pointy ears and gaping mouth, she looks more like a beloved family pet than a veteran drug-sniffing police dog. This is even causing problems with the United States. A recent White House report found the amount of land where peasants and drug traffickers harvest the plant used to make cocaine rose 11% in 2017, despite $10bn in U.S. counter-narcotics work.
