Cal­gary po­lice dog stabbed in the line of duty, sus­pect in cus­tody

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - CANADA -

CAL­GARY — Cal­gary po­lice say a po­lice ser­vice dog with the K9 unit was badly in­jured in the line of duty.

They say of­fi­cers were called to a break-and-en­ter at an el­e­men­tary school, when the sus­pects fled.

The K9 unit was called in, and dur­ing the foot chase, one of the sus­pects stabbed the ser­vice dog with a knife. Of­fi­cers say the dog was taken to an emer­gency vet­eri­nary hos­pi­tal with in­juries de­scribed as life-threat­en­ing. They say the dog un­der­went surgery and its con­di­tion has been up­graded to se­ri­ous. Po­lice say that both sus­pects are in po­lice cus­tody, and the per­son who stabbed the dog will be de­tained.
