Injured Ocean County K9 Officer Returns Home
A couple days ago we told you about the K9 officer who was injured during an investigation. At the time, details were sparse, but more of the story has been revealed, and it involves a happy ending for the police force.
Police were serving a warrant to a man in Mantoloking. Officers found the man armed with a knife, and sent the K9 at him. The man stabbed the dog before being shot by the police.
The dog was rushed to the Red Bank Veterinary Hospital and has made a full recovery! Kane, a Belgian Malinois, has been part of the Ocean County Sheriff's Department since 2012 and is certified in patrol, tracking and narcotics.
A Belgian Malinois happens to be the same breed of dog that I volunteered to be bitten by during the Billboard Radiothon, and that hurt like hell.
