Meet Sammy, the Eastern Cape’s first anti-poaching Tracking and Apprehension Dog!

Meet Sammy, the Eastern Cape’s first anti-poaching Tracking and Apprehension Dog!

Sammy, a live wire 18-month-old German Shepherd with outstanding tracking and obedience skills, recently relocated to the Eastern Cape from Pretoria to help combat rhino poaching, which has increased in the Eastern Cape in 2015. Sammy will significantly enhance the efforts of private anti-poaching units and community patrols currently in place. Sammy’s arrival is a first for the province as her deployment is a private initiative by the Chipembere Rhino Foundation, an Eastern Cape based NGO, which has implemented and facilitated the K9 project, at a cost of approximately R100,000, to assist with protecting rhino in the province.
