K-9 Cop Hero: Colombian Drug Cartel Offers $70K for Killing of Superhero Police Dog

A Colombian narcotics officer is under heavy guard and being hidden by her fellow narc officers following an announcement from one of the world’s most ruthless drug cartels that there is a $70,000.00 bounty placed on her fluffy head.

The threatened narc is a Colombian police dog who has more placed on her head than the cartels usually pay to kill police or rival drug gang members. The Urabenos Cartel put out a “contract” on the 6-year-old German Shepard named Sombra.

According to narcotics enforcement agents, this particular gang is known for “taking out hits” on its rivals, politicians, journalists and cops, but the bounties are usually a few hundred dollars.  Why such a high bounty for Sombra? She’s a badass narc — in her 6 years, she’s helped bust 245 suspects!

According to reports, the Urabeños drug gang, Colombia’s most feared organized crime syndicate, put the hit on Sombra — in English, Shadow — after the nationally iconic police dog sniffed out nearly 10 tons of pure cocaine in 2 separate busts.

Sombra had been working Colombia’s port cities sniffing out contraband especially cocaine, but the police dog’s commanding officer assigned her to the Bogota airport because it’s not part of the Urabeños territory.

Sombra’s exploits have made her a superhero of sorts in the face of Colombia’s ongoing war on drugs.  However, the threat to Sombra’s life is serious enough that, for the time being, the National Police will take extra precautions to ensure her security.

A sniffer dog in Bogota’s El Dorado airport has become a nationwide celebrity after her work came to the country’s attention, as shown in footage filmed on Friday.
