Incredible Dog Protects Rhinos And Hunts Poachers in Africa





With only one male northern white rhino left in this planet, efforts to eradicate poaching had been strengthened. To discourage illegal hunters, anti-poaching groups had placed cameras on the horns of the critically endangered species while researchers had developed lab-grown horns as an alternative.

Recently, a team in Kenya recruited a new member to stop hunters from savagely killing rhinos for their horns. Diego, an anti-poaching dog from the Ol Pejeta Conservatory in Kenya, is certainly a rhino’s best friend. Reaching a speed of up to 40mph, Diego got what it takes to protect the last male northern white rhino in the world.

Thanks to Diego, the sanctuary has not lost a rhino in over a year.

The incredible footage gives us a glimpse of a dog’s perspective into what it’s like to catch a poacher. With the help of a GoPro attached to Diego’s back, we get to witness the anti-poaching dog’s adrenaline-fueled pursuit of criminals.
