They are now in training in one of the ranger's sections.

Apparently the training is going well. :dance:

Imberbe :thumbs_up: Thank you for info :) I like what they say :hmz:
Quote:
The tracker hounds are specialists at high speed tracking and can outrun any fleeing poacher, even across difficult tracking terrain which would halt the most experienced human trackers. The hounds hunt as a pack and are able to run off leash making them independant of humans who would hamper their progress. They are trained to ignore animals and focus on their human target.


Signage on the vehicle :great:

Thanks Imberebe! The pack has grown and all look healthy and ready for duty. :thumbs_up: to all these dogs and their handlers. And thank you for the organisations donating them and the HR vet that spayed them. You are all heroes!!!

First poachers have been chased down by the dogs! May there be many more.

The first dogs are now reaching operational age and experience.
