Urabeños cartel puts $70,000 price on dog's head

Ulm's main customs office presents seized drugs

Actually, add animals to the latter since a Colombian drug gang has reportedly put a bounty of $70,000 on a drug detecting canine.

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

Now the sniffer dog has a price on her head as the leader of the most powerful drug cartel in the country wants her stopped.

This record of arrests and drug seizures has led Sombra to be referred to as "the torment of 'Otoniel, '" who is the head of the Urabeños mafia.

The six-year-old German shepherd is now stationed at the Bogotá Airport, which is much safer than the gang's heartland, where she used to work with counter-narcotics forces.

The threat to Sombra's life was discovered via an intercepted phone call.

Israel To Expand Settlement In Response To Deadly Stabbing
In a statement late Thursday, it praised the "courageous operation" in the Adam settlement without claiming responsibility for it. During the raid, clashes broke out between young Palestinians and soldiers firing tear gas.

Police say she is accompanied by her usual handler as well as extra officers to improve her safety during her deployments. 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.

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

News cited intelligence sources saying that the gang put a price of about C$91,000 on Sombra's head, and that the dog has been moved from the gang's operating centre to the airport in Bogota.

President-elect Ivan Duque promised a tougher approach on coca production during his election campaign, with strategies including aerial spraying and drones.

"Sombra the German shepherd has become the terror of criminal organizations, " a recent story in Colombia's El Espectador newspaper proclaimed. So even if they do get Sombra, there will just be another generation of drug sniffing dogs to take her place.

The work is risky: Colombia's national police estimates they've lost at least 1,800 officers over the past two decades and a number of dogs to the war on drugs. "She's playful, and in fact that is part of the development of her job".
