In 1998, officers from the North East Rand Dog Unit ventured to a concealed location near Springs, accompanied by three undocumented immigrants, possibly from Mozambique.
To the best of our knowledge, no charges were filed against the three individuals. They were apprehended solely for the purpose of what the officers referred to as a “dog exercise.”
The six policemen aimed to train two young police dogs in the art of aggression and ferocity. Two experienced dogs were utilized to instruct the newcomers on how to subdue and apprehend a human target. The training session extended for over an hour.
