The Cape Town Metro Police’s K9 unit is saying goodbye to two furry members who have recently handed in their badges. According to SABC, after eight years of service, the canines Flynn and Kubla Khani will both retire from service.
Flynn who was trained to detect explosives’ biggest bust was in 2015 when he led officers to hand grenades, mortar and R5 magazines and ammunition buried in an open field in Montana in Cape town. His fellow K9 colleague Kubla Khani has been praised for her good temperament and intelligence. She was however injured during training and could not pursue active duty but remained a member of the team. Both officers have been adopted by handlers in the K9 unit and will remain members of the family.
