Seizures Claim the Life of VPD K-9 Gary

The Vincennes Police Department is mourning the loss of K-9 Gary who unexpectedly passed away Wednesday.  In a release, authorities believe that the police dog had a seizure before heading out on a Department search warrant.  Gary was taken first to Vincennes Veterinary Clinic for treatment, and was headed to Purdue for further treatment when he suffered another zeizure.  At that time, authorities made the difficult decision to put him down to end his suffering.

The department asks the community to keep K-9 Sergeant Michael Caswell in its thoughts and prayers.  Caswell was Gary’s police officer partner and handler.
