A police dog is being hailed a hero after a spectacular action packed manhunt ended in the capture of two suspected robbers found submerged in a swampy lagoon and in dense forest undergrowth.
Cops in Brazil released video on Monday (27) of Brutus, a Dutch Shepherd sniffer dog, collaring two fugitives following the attempted heist on a post office in Blumenau Centre, in the Itajaí Valley, south Brazil.
The images capture the moment the detector dog guides its handlers through the forest to a boggy area where the creature locates one of the accused who has tried to hide by dunking beneath the murky water.
The intrepid dog then tracks down the location of the other escapee who is found buried under bushes in another part of the forest beside a road.
