Africa’s Anti-poaching dogs

Different countries in Africa have employed K9s best as the war against poachers increases. In these videos below, shot in Krugerpark you’ll find out more about the bravery of the Belgian Malinois, who are mostly used for this task.

In the last 7 years half of the elephant population has been killed by poachers.

Meet Killer and his brother Giant, anti-poaching dogs, Killer has caught 115 groups of poachers in 18 months time. They have diminished the ivory trade significantly. They are trained to stop rhino and elephant poachers.

Giant, has also been trained to drop down from a helicopter, to be as quick on the ground as possible. In the same clip you’ll meet Arrow, the first skydiving dog to stop poachers. These are the heroes of the day.

Killer’s video is in Afrikaans with English subtitles.

Hi everyone, I'm Dagmar and I'm born in Belgium, at 27 I moved to the south coast of Spain, initially just for 6 months, however 22 years later, I'm still here. I have a big passion for animal welfare. I have 3 dogs and a cat, all rescues. In September 2015, I turned vegetarian and over the course of that year, I have leant more and more towards veganism. My aim is to eat as 'clean' as possible.
