Lightning Strike Kills Police Dog

There’s sad news to report about a dedicated K9 officer in Panama City Beach, Florida. The police department said Argo, a Belgian Malinois, was struck and killed by lightning while he was in an outdoor kennel Sunday as his handler was on his way to a training session. The police chief said Argo’s handler, Cpl. Jason Gleason, “is still having a hard time” with the loss. Argo served for about five years with Gleason, helping him seize illegal narcotics and make felony arrests. — Read it at Florida’s News Herald
