Gallery of images of Negro Matapacos (“Black Cop-Killer”), a famous stray dog from the streets of Santiago who joined student protests across the city from 2010, and in particular during the 2011 movement for free education.

Negro Matapacos sadly died of old age exactly 2 years ago today, 26 August 2017. In addition to information online, some people who knew him sent us some of their memories of him, telling us how he defied tear gas and water cannons, and only ever barked at or attacked police officers, and never students or rioters.
