Colombian narcotics officer Sombra – a six-year-old German Shepherd – is in hiding after one of the world’s most ruthless drug cartels put a $70K bounty on her cute, fluffy head.
According to reports, the Urabeños drug gang, Colombia’s most feared criminal organization, put the hit on Sombra after the 6-year-old pooch recently sniffed out nearly 10 TONS of cocaine in 2 separate busts. Who’s a good doggie??
Sombra (Shadow in English) had been working Colombia’s port cities, but officials have moved her beat to the Bogota airport because it’s outside the Urabeños turf. Translation: She’s on desk duty, for her own safety.
The gang is known for taking out hits on its enemies, but usually in the hundreds of dollars.
Why so high for Sombra? She’s a badass narc — in her 6 years, she’s helped bust 245 suspects!
Sombra’s accomplishments have made her a cuddly folk hero in the face of Colombia’s ongoing war on drugs.
