A police K9 with the Lake Forest Police Department in Minnesota, died shortly after assisting his handler in the arrest of a man who was “not compliant” during a traffic stop late Tuesday night. Word of the death of the German shepherd, named “Ranger,” was released to followers of the Lake Forest Police Department Facebook page early Wednesday.
The post reveals little about how or why the K9 died:
It is with heavy hearts we post that we lost one of our own this morning.
K9 Ranger passed away after assisting on a call late last night.
Please keep FLPD and Officer Kent and his family in your thoughts and prayers.
According to a Twin Cities report, Ranger helped arrest a non-compliant man who was refusing to follow police commands. Not long after the man was arrested, Ranger suffered some type of medical emergency. The dog was rushed to a veterinarian for care, but did not survive.
