From OREGON LIVE:
Clark County police dog, Kane, was killed in a chase Saturday. He was stabbed during a search for two people who fled from a stolen police car. He was taken to an animal hospital and later pronounced dead.
The department is planning a memorial service for Kane.
“It's like an officer being killed,” Department spokesman Sgt. Scott Schanaker said. “There's such a tremendous turnout. They have to do a lot of planning.”
Two people were arrested in connection with the incident.
People have been peppering the county sheriff's office with inquiries about making a donation towards the cost of training police dogs in memory of Kane. Details of how to do this can be found on the Oregon Live page.
