Cairo the Bin Laden Hunter
Who was that dog on the mission to kill Bin Laden? Cairo, the famed Bin Laden hunter? Do we have a sighting? Who is this Cairo character and why has his image captivated the world?
Cairo is now synonymous with the daring raid on May 1, 2011 by Seal Team Six to take down America’s public enemy #1, Osama Bin Laden. The Bin Laden raid is the event that drew widespread national awareness to our four-legged service members. Did Cairo lead the Seals to Bin Laden in that compound? Did Cairo have to “take any one out” with his mouthful of teeth and fangs? We might never know, but we yearn to learn the full story.
This isn’t a picture of Cairo but, like Cairo, this is a Belgian Malinois, Multi Purpose Canine (MPC) and a Seal Team Member. This picture is of Seal 18 conducting a demonstration.
Seal Teams are elite members of our Armed Forces who are part of the United States Military’s Special Operations Command. Seal Team Six is an unconventional force and one of the best we have.
Likewise, MPC are unique to Special Operations. So what is a multi purpose canine and how do they differ from conventional dog teams? Stay tuned for the next post on our ”Special” Canines!
