Our anti-poaching unit, the Kariega Game Reserve – Global Conservation Force unit, successfully tracked down a suspected snare/meat poacher after he was spotted killing a warthog in a snare.
The team utilized K9 Cyrus, donated to the unit by Chipembere Rhino Foundation , who was put on the tracks and lead the team straight to the suspect.
Great team effort by all involved! It takes years and multiple layers of support to sustain and maintain an anti-poaching unit. From training and professional certifications, to salaries, vehicles, and the “daily grind” it is no small task.
We would like to share our thanks to Kilo9 Academy as well for their collaboration on our units ongoing K9 training in the field. The team recently spent days training alongside other handlers and K9s in various scenarios to keep their skillsets sharp.
