I don't think those lovely ladies will need maps in any case and I am sure they are going to be a wonderful asset and help in the anti poaching. :clap:

They will work in KNP but we will not be able to disclose their locations, for security reasons.

They are doing well ... see the latest photo on their web page.

Imberbe :thumbs_up: Thank you for info :) I like what they say :hmz:
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 independent of humans who would hamper their progress. They are trained to ignore animals and focus on their human target.

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!!!
