  • Sombra which means Shadow in English had been based in Turbo in the Urabá region of Colombia

In the last few years, the German Shepherd's work has led directly to 245 arrests. Police have moved Sombra to ensure her safety.

"According to intelligence reports, the drug gangs "Urabenos" set the price to $70 thousand for the head of a German shepherd, who had found 10 tons of cocaine", - said in the message.

The drug lord in question is head of Clan del Golfo (the Gulf Clan) - a drug cartel which has its own guerrilla army - and he has had enough of the animal [VIDEO]'s incredible skills. 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.

She is now the target of Colombia's most powerful and unsafe drug cartel.

Sombra a drug-sniffing dog sniffs boxes searching for drugs at the cargo hold of El Dorado airport in Bogota, Colombia. However, she is not totally safe just yet and for this reason, two armed guards transport her, backwards and forwards from her drug-sniffing shift in the airport in a van with tinted windows. That dog, as you may have guessed, is Sombra. According to Rojas, Sombra has an incredible sense of smell, beyond that of other sniffer dogs.

Some of Sombra's recent busts include uncovering over five tons of Gulf Clan cocaine destined for Europe and concealed in crates of bananas. But even with advanced technology, experts say on-the-ground detective work such as Sombra's is critical. Investigators uncovered the threat against Sombra through an intercepted phone call.

"The fact they want to hurt Sombra and offer such a high reward for her capture or death shows the impact she's had on their profits", a Colombia police spokesperson said. This is despite United States counter-narcotics efforts, into which $10 billion has been invested.
