Gabi, a female German long-haired shepherd dog, was eight years old when she came to the Belgrade zoo. She was paired with another dog and together they accompanied the night watchman, patrolling the grounds of the zoo. Although she was no longer young, she was constantly proving her courage, bravery and determination.
One night a female jaguar managed to jump out of her cage and heey tried to return the jaguar to her cage, but in the end they realised that it would unfortunately be necessary to shoot her. Gabi was found near the site of the duel. She lay half-dead, in a large pool of blood. That night she fearlessly engaged an opponent much stronger than herself and prevented a dangerous beast from attacking the night watchman or escaping from the zoo and attacking the citizens of Belgrade.
