Campaign raising funds to ensure sniffer dogs stop illegal wildlife trade in India

12 Sep 2016 | by Deepshikha Tahiliani | Posted in: Wag News

Dogs are man’s best friend in every way possible. They are always there for you. Don’t you agree with us? They have supported you whenever they can. Now is the time that you support them. As an initiative by WWF India and TRAFFIC India, we request you to join and share the Super Sniffer Gang. These Super Sniffers are basically either German Shepherd or Belgian Malinois. They are trained thoroughly in order to aid the forest department and police to collect strong evidence against smugglers and poachers, who illegally sell leopard and tiger skins, elephant tusks and more.

In the training program, these German Shepherds are provided with training that helps them to fight this hideous crime. Rana, being amongst the super sniffer is a two and a half-year-old German shepherd. He has been helping our police forces to keep the Bandipur Tiger reserve poachers’ free. He sniffed out a group of teakwood smugglers from the reserve. Another time, Rana managed to sniff a man-eating tiger in Nilgiris. There are so many examples that prove the training program for these German Shepherds is worth.

 

A Super Sniffer training program isn’t a cakewalk. To train each dog, a cost of Rs. 3,10,000 is incurred. This includes the dog, handler’s fee, uniforms, dog accessories, honorarium dog handlers, medicines, field kits and more. About Rs.6,00,000 is a spend for a refresher course for about 11 dogs out of 27, who are deployed in the super sniffer gang since 2008.

 

Apart from WWF-India and TRAFFIC India, big names are associated with the campaign.
