Police Dog Stabbed and Killed in Washington State
Published April 04, 2011
Clark County Sheriff dog Kane
<!-- /hmedia -->A decorated sheriff’s dog was killed in the line of duty in Washington state early Saturday after he was stabbed trying to apprehend a suspect.
The black Dutch shepherd, “Kane,” had tracked down a male suspect after he and a female accomplice driving a stolen car rammed a police vehicle and took off running.
Kane, who was trained to bite and hold suspects, tracked down 31-year-old Keegan Graves. Deputies say Graves stabbed the dog numerous times.
The dog was rushed to St. Francis Animal hospital in Clark County where he died from his injuries.
A SWAT team later apprehended Graves and 22-year-old Natasa Cresap. Graves faces charges of harming a police dog, auto theft and attempting to elude a police officer, while Cresap was arrested on an outstanding warrant.
Kane had worked with the Clark County Sheriff’s Office for six years and was scheduled for retirement in 2012.
The dog and his partner, Deputy Rick Osborne, were one of the first K-9 teams certified by the Washington State Patrol and the DEA to be airlifted into marijuana groves, Q13fox.com reported Sunday.
They worked to help in arrests and secure the area as ground units move in and helped officers seize more than 300,000 marijuana plants in 2008. Osborne and Kane received the Director's Award For Distinguished Service from the Office of National Drug Control Policy.

Scituate Ma K-9 Felix RIP
On Friday, August 12, Scituate Police Department's K9 Felix was laid to rest peacefully surrounded by those who knew and loved him after discovering on Thursday that he had advanced stage cancer throughout his body. Felix was an asset to the South Shore's law enforcement community as well as being an extended part of the Scituate Animal Shelter family. He and his partner Officer Brian McLaughlin have many apprehensions, location of missing persons and positive drug searches to be proud of. Felix and his partner routinely put themselves in harm’s way to protect the public. The shelter proudly sponsored Felix's routine annual medical care and we hope to continue supporting the K-9 program in the near future.
Rest in Peace Felix<!-- google_ad_section_end -->

*** Passing of Retired K-9 King ***
Last night, King, one of our retired K-9's passed away. King was assigned to Amber Wheeler during his BPD service time and he remained with her in his retirement. King was 10.5 years old, and apparently he had a tumor rupture that led to internal bleeding. Unfortunately, they had to put him down. King looked an awful lot like his brother K-9 Joker, another retired BPD K-9 who still resides with Capt. Adkins.#rainbowbridge#K9
