Since dogs have high intelligence, it is easy to train them. This is the reason why many dogs end up in military training. Under the military training, dogs are subjective to intense preparation for any unforeseen incident such as war. But who would have thought that a dog would be instrumental in helping capture Osama Bin Laden in 2011?
It was through the help of this dog named Cairo that Bin Laden’s hideout got tracked by US military agents. Bin Laden is one of the most sought-after terrorists in the world because his name is synonymous with violence. This is the reason why the US military devised all the needed plans to capture him.
Before Cairo got tasked to be one of the dogs to look after Bin Laden, the pooch was under Will Chesney’s custody. The Navy officer trained the pooch so that Cairo could help in several military operations. But Chesney never thought that the pooch would be part of the team that would get deployed to Afghanistan. The group’s goal is to arrest the terrorist Bid Laden, whether dead or alive.
Since it was a difficult battle, Chesney knew he had to prepare the pooch both mentally and physically. Chesney, however, never doubted the dog’s ability. This is why it came as no surprise that the pooch played an essential role in pinpointing Bin Laden’s hiding place.
Apart from this, the dog likewise helped in clearing the operation after the terrorist got killed in 2011. It was a delicate operation, but Chesney is thankful that the pooch managed to survive. Before Cairo’s retirement in 2013, the dog received accolades for his bravery and service to the United States. Of course, no one would forget the dog’s contribution to America’s most significant victory of pacifying Bin Laden’s threat of terror to the world.
