India’s first dog “Zorba” to track down poachers dies in Guwahati

  • Assam

Zorba, India’s first Anti-Poacher Dog in the northeast, passed away last night due to age and health-related issues. The 12-year-old male Belgian Malinois was a member of Aaranyak’s ‘K9’, the country’s first dog squad for wildlife crimes.

In his years-long service, Zorba helped wildlife officials track down more than 60 poachers in the state and was ferociously involved in anti-poaching operations.

He was given a tearful farewell by wildlife activists at a solemn burial ceremony organised here on Tuesday.
