The biggest and most brutal drug cartel in Colombia has placed a $70,000 hit on the head of a German shepherd named Sombra, a drug-sniffing K9 with an unusually sensitive nose.

In a bid to protect their precious drug-busting weapon, Colombian officials have transferred Sombra from the port city of Turbo, known to police as Urabenos' stronghold, to the capital city of Bogota, where she now works at the global airport. A recent White House report found the amount of land where peasants and drug traffickers harvest the plant used to make cocaine rose 11 percent in 2017, despite $10 billion in US counter-narcotics work.

Colombian police said Sombra, whose name translates to Shadow, will now be accompanied by extra officers during her deployments for her safety, BBC News reported.

A Colombian drug gang has out a $70,000 bounty on a police dog.

He has to change location every three hours, according to Business Insider, as police close in on the cartel leader.




She has already won two K-9 Medals of Courage for her valor and might get a third one this year, he said.

Sombra now finds shipments of contraband at Bogotá airport.

"Sombra is a very friendly, calm canine, and for that reason, she has no problem approaching children or people who want to say hello to her", Oscar Favian Solarte, head of the anti-narcotics division, told El Tiempo. Because she has been so successful, she is the topic of tweets and has even been featured on television. "She is playful. In fact, during training this is part of her work - not just finding the caches of illicit drugs". Investigators uncovered the threat against Sombra through an intercepted phone call.

Dairo Antonio Úsuga, alias "Otoniel", is the head of the Urabeños, one of Colombia's most powerful criminal groups and one of the country's most wanted men.
