Lewa conservancy acquires three dogs for anti-poaching

04 March 2016, 12:24 Joseph Njung’eh

Isiolo - The Lewa Wildlife Conservancy has acquired three dogs from Wales to join its anti-poaching unit.

The dogs named Maxo, Zack and Jack have been acquired for important mission to join the Conservancy dog unit to protect creatures more valuable than gold, indicated a press statement from the Conservancy.

The two Belgian Malinois and single Dutch Herder have finished months of intensive training in Bridgend.

They were being trained to detect human scent and track for miles in bush terrain as they are the breeds often used in police, military and security work.

“They have been trained by Simon Mallin who's the Head Trainer of Malpeet K9, an academy used for training sniffer, patrol and security dogs,” read the statement.

“Last year, our resident tracker dogs Tipper and Tony were deployed 14 times to follow up on cases of wildlife and other crimes within and beyond our borders, often with successful results,” it added.

The Conservancy said the three dogs have been selected for their high energy level, a 'driven' personality and a pronounced prey and chase drive.

Lewa’s tracker dog unit is often called upon to assist anti-poaching investigations across the country, from the expansive Northern Kenya to the Maasai Mara and the Kenyan coast.
