A pack of dogs in South Africa has heroically saved 45 rhinos from poachers since 2018. Specially trained to track down poachers and detect elephant tusks and rhino horns, this crew of Doberman-bloodhound mixes, Malinois, Labradors, and Spaniels have honed their inherent skills to keep poachers away from wildlife refuges in the area.

Our Take?

We’re used to dogs protecting humans from harm, but it’s especially amazing to see wildlife protecting each other in this unique way!
