    Default RIP FBI K9 Ape

    Thank you Ape, for you part in ending the standoff with the man who terrorized our community.

    Oh man! That sucks! He just finished his training, too. Poor pup!

    I suppose the suspect is alive? Or did he do the suicide-by-cop thing? That worthless hunk of stale monkey poo.

    Suicide by cop. They intended to take him out alive, but then he shot Ape, and they all fired on him. That man had shot 6 men, killing 4 of them.

    I'm close enough to Herkimer to have been interested in the outcome and, when I read the news that he had shot and killed the dog, I felt so sad. My sympathies go out to the families of the dead and Ape's handler.

    Close to home here as well. Had just stopped to pick up some groceries in Herkimer the night before, en route home from a trip up north.

    This was a frightening, apparently random, and long lasting incident, and so many are indebted to this wonderful dog.

    This happened in the town where my grandparents live. So very, very sad for the community and now ever more heart wrenching knowing that souless jerk took K9 Ape with him. May he rot in hell.

    Wow, lots of people here with local connections. Me too- my favorite pizza place is in Herkimer, been through Mohawk a million times. Stuff like this just doesn't happen there. RIP Ape.

    Ape is the first K9 who will receive special honors from The United States Honor Flag.

    Locally, the Herkimer County Humane Society is dedicating their annual Mutt Strutt to Ape and the Herkimer Police have set up a fund toward a local memorial.

    My mother works in a building that is directly across the street from the back of the building the Kurt Myers was hiding in. Her building was on lock down and all the personnel were moved into areas out of direct line of sight. My brothers live a couple blocks from the two scenes in Mohawk. My daughter, niece and nephew were in schools that were locked down. For 23 hours there was fear in my household, in our valley, and in a large area of the state. Every local police force was on scene as well as County Sherrifs, State Troopers, FBI, Federal Marshals and likely others that I'm forgetting. There were several K9 units. I'm thankful for every single one of them.

    our guide puppy group raised money to buy a kevlar vest for a local police dog. seems like that should be standard issue.
