    New York police K9 was filmed taking down a suspect after the man punched a police officer in the face on Friday. Randy Martinez, a 23-year-old man who lives in Newburgh, said he was leaving his house with a friend when a man, identified as Tony Mann, 31, wandered onto his driveway and threatened him with a knife. “I rolled down the window and was going to tell him he can’t be on my property, and then he takes out his knife, and I’m just like, ‘Oh, God, no. What’s going to happen?’” Martinez said he called police because he...

    Fresh snow had just melted and the scent trail was more than a day old when a yellow Labrador Retriever named Buck went in search of evidence linked to an elk that had been poached on March 19, near Cottage Grove. Time- and snow- work against tracking dogs. Still, Buck was hot on the scent of gunpowder and shell casings. He found casings, also known as brass, among grass and twigs, invisible to the human eye. Three times Buck signaled his handler, Oregon State Police Fish and Wildlife Senior Trooper Josh Wolcott. Finding three casings confirmed the story OSP...

    Looks can be profoundly deceiving. At first glance, Tracy "Trace" Sargent could easily be a high-powered corporate CEO or lead a marketing firm. This petite Georgia blond with a commanding presence and the charisma and intellect to match, looks like she would fit elegantly at the head of a boardroom. You certainly don't envision this refined, vibrant woman with a sweet Southern drawl to be out enthusiastically hunting lost persons, getting dirty, crawling through rubble, or chasing down fugitives by moonlight. Yet that is exactly what she has been doing with her K9 partners for over 20 years, gracefully shattering...

(Photo by Susan Norris) Sculptor Susan Norris has a long history of touching the hearts of others through her art, but recently, she took on a new project — one involving man’s best friend in everyday life, but perhaps even more so on the battlefield. Titled “My Hero, My Friend,” Norris’ newest statue is a life-size bronze sculpture of a military working dog wearing a Purple Heart, mourning the loss of its two-legged companion. “I’ve always had an affection for animals, but the bond between a military...

    GEORGETOWN, S.C. (WCBD) – A deputy in Georgetown County was forced to use a taser on his own K-9 on Wednesday afternoon. According to the Georgetown County Sheriff’s Office, a deputy responded to the scene of a reported burglary around 4:00 p.m. A cow near the scene distracted the dog which led to the dog biting the cow. To deescalate the situation, the deputy tased the dog. The cow was spooked and “struck the deputy and the property owner,” resulting in minor injuries, according to GCSO. The sheriff’s office said that the burglary call “proved to be unfounded.”

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Every dog has his day, just not at the White House. President Donald Trump tweets that the military working dog injured in the raid last weekend that killed the Islamic State leader will leave the Middle East for the White House sometime next week. And the president appears to have declassified the dog’s name: Conan. That had remained a military secret because of the classified nature of the mission in which Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi died. **SNIP** Conan was hurt after being exposed to live electrical cables but has returned to active duty, the Pentagon said Wednesday.

    A four-legged officer not only helped his human colleagues track down a suspected killer, but also took a bullet to the head, DeKalb County police said Friday.

Despite his severe injuries, it’s possible Indi could eventually return to duty, Chief James Conroy said Friday. “The dog was very helpful in apprehending and locating the subject in this case,” Conroy said. That subject, Brandon Taylor, is accused of running from Officer Edgar Flores and...

    VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) -- Two robbery suspects exchanged gunfire with Virginia Beach police late Thursday night before being taken into custody with the help of K9 officers. The robbery happened just before 11:20 p.m. at a 7-Eleven in the 1700 block of S. Independence Boulevard, according to police. Officers caught on to this robbery thanks in part to a plan that was developed to address a spree of multi-jurisdictional armed robberies at 7-Eleven stores across Hampton Roads. Members of the 4th Precinct and Special Operations Command were surveilling operations at stores, when officers saw the two masked suspects leaving...

    If Illinois legalizes recreational marijuana by ballot measure this November, police may have to "put down" many of the 275 K-9 dogs trained to recognize narcotic substances across the state. Police organizations oppose legalizing marijuana for recreational use, and some marijuana advocates have condemned them for dangling canine death as a political tool. Police agencies invest thousands of dollars and months of training to teach dogs to sniff out and alert officers to the presence of various illegal narcotics, including marijuana, cocaine, heroin, and other drugs. These dogs, affectionately known as K-9 units, are very specialized, and police insist that...
