They want the company to grow and prosper beyond setbacks and competitors, and are one of the cornerstones of strong enterprises. And one boss just lost such a trooper thanks to their own narrow-minded decision.

K9 Fast Response Unit Has Saved 45 Rhinos From Poachers Over Two years Of Service

K9 Fast Response Unit Has Saved 45 Rhinos From Poachers Over Two years Of Service

bored panda - 2 weeks ago

There are many reasons dogs are called mans best friends. They’re loyal and smart, but endlessly childish and sometimes dorky and, most importantly, they always have your back even in the hardest of times.

This K9 fast response unit operating in South Africa always has the backs of their humans when fighting poachers and protecting wildlife, and even do a much better job than their humans. Turns out, in the areas where the Southern African Wildlife College patrol, the success rate of the dogs is around 68 percent, compared to only between three to five percent success rate when there are no doggos around.

Turns out, Southern African Wildlife College in Greater Kruger National Park has a K9 fast response unit that is trained to protect wildlife. All kinds of dogs, from beagles to bloodhounds, begin their training there when theyre still just small puppies and grow up to be a great help for park rangers.

They’ve already saved 45 rhinos in South Africa from being poached

Johan van Straaten, a “K9 Master” at the college, said: “The data we collect for this applied learning project, aimed at informing best practice, shows we have prevented approximately 45 rhinos being killed since the free tracking dogs became operational in February 2018.

“In the areas where the Southern African Wildlife College patrol, the success rate of the dogs is around 68 percent using both on and off-leash free tracking dogs, compared to between three to five percent with no canine capacity, van Straaten said. “The game-changer has been the free tracking dogs who are able to track at speeds much faster than a human can, in terrain where the best human trackers would lose spoor.

Van Straaten said they train Texan black-and-tan coonhounds, Belgian Malinois, foxhounds and blue ticks skills that benefit counter-poaching initiativesfree tracking, incursion, detection, patrol, and apprehension dogs. “They begin training from birth and are socialized from a very young age. They learn how to track, bay at a person in a tree, and follow basic obedience,” he explained.

“The game changer has been the free tracking dogs who are able to track at speeds much faster than a human can, in terrain where the best human trackers would lose spoor, he said

Turns out, South Africa is the country hit hardest by rhino poachers, so theres no better place for such a project to take place

“At six months we put all that training together more formallythey do have the necessary skill set to do the work at a younger age, but are not mature enough to handle all the pressures of real operations. Depending on a number of factors, dogs become operational at around 18 months old.”
