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

The first dogs are now reaching operational age and experience.

Torticat, saw a FB post today indicating that rangers, with support from K9, arrested 3 poachers, so doing their job.

Warm thanks to Torticat :gflower: I am sure that every donation is appreciated. Training and upkeep must cost a lot of money.

On our last trip to Skukuza, we saw some the dogs been taken into the veld for training. They looked such handsome and well kept animals.

We saw an official bakkie with 2 dogs on the back on the S100, They were sniffing the breeze and looked very fit and happy, I hope they have a long, healthy and happy life and catch loads of those pesky poachers!!! :sniper:
