Colombian Drug Cartel Place $70k Bounty On Police Dog That Keeps Sniffing Out Their Operations

TMZ reports that a  Colombian drug cartels placed a 200m peso (about $70,000) bounty on the head of Sombra, a German shepherd who’s just trying to do her job and be a good dog.


The 6-year-old pup has caused a bit of trouble for the Urabeños gang by leading officers to ten tons of cocaine overall in two separate busts.

(About $300 million worth.) She’s also helped to take 245 suspects off the street. Now, the Urabeños are trying to get rid of the police dog with the hefty bounty.

Colombian police have taken precautions to keep Sombra safe, like moving her away from her usual beat of Colombia’s port cities, run by the Urabeños.

Now, she’s hanging out in the Bogotá international airport instead, where the Urabeños hopefully can’t get to her. BBC says Sombra, which means Shadow in English, is also being accompanied by additional officers rather than just her handler.

According to TMZ, the Urabeños usually place bounties on humans (not dogs) and it’s often for a few hundred dollars. But Sombra must really have the cartel shook.

And if we’ve learned anything from cop films, it’s that it won’t be long before she goes rogue to take down her enemies before they get to the ones she loves. (After her boss takes her gun and badge, of course.) Take that, Air Bud.
