Chase

K9 Chase was shot and killed after being abducted from his handler's patrol car at the Leeman Field fairgrounds in Pennington Gap. His handler had stopped at the fairground to use the restroom and left Chase in the idling patrol car.

When the officer returned he discovered that Chase was missing. Chase's body was located in roadside ditch suffering from a gunshot wound two days later.

Thank you for your service Chase and what was done to you was the most cowardly act I have ever heard of... I send my deepest sympathies to the handler. I'm sure you were an outstanding partner. I hope to someday be a k9 handler.
