Second Mission Proves Fatal for FBI Dog

3

We owe our lives to our heroes; the men, women, and K-9's that serve our country every day. From the armed forces abroad to the local police and fire stations around the corner; they are the backbone of our society. 

Sadly tragedy is a part of being a hero. 

On March 14th, Kurt Myers locked himself in an abandoned bar after killing four people and wounding two others.

Police sent in Ape, the German Shepherd FBI dog, during the 19-hour standoff in an effort to take Myers down. Sadly the effort resulted in Ape getting shot. The FBI returned fire and killed Myers.

Ape was rushed to an animal hospital in an armored car, but sadly there was no hope for Ape. He died shortly after arrival.

Please have a moment of silence for all heroes, man and animal alike.

It's so sad to think this beautiful German shepherd (I own one too) had to give his life for such scum. I feel MUCH sorrier for Ape than the man who was shot and killed. I salute all of the men, women and dogs who risk their lives for us every day, and pray for their safety every night.
