K9 Gus died after inhaling a foreign object into his lung while performing a track for a missing woman in Hillsborough River State Park.

He was deployed after several previous searches failed to locate the missing woman. Gus' track was successful and the woman's body was in the park. However, K9 Gus inhaled an object into his lung that lead to his death a short time later.

K9 Gus had served with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission for four years.

R.I.P. Gus,

This year will mark my 3rd year riding 250 miles on a bicycle. Each year I have honored one of our fallen heroes. This year I will ride from Philadelphia, PA to Washington, DC in honor of K9 Gus. We will leave the Philadelphia area on May 9th and arrive in Washington, DC on May 12th.

You too can honor Gus and the many other heroes that have died in the line of duty by donating in their honor, please visit the website at
