K9 Cain was stabbed to death during the apprehension of a subject who had stolen a tractor trailer shortly after 4:00 am.

A Cumberland County deputy had attempted to stop the semi near the intersection of Highway 68 and Highway 127 after it was involved in a hit-and-run. The driver led the deputy and other responding officers in a pursuit until crashing into a tree on Genesis Road at Obed River.

K9 Cain was released as the man fled into the woods. Cain returned to his handler suffering numerous stab wounds to its chest. He was taken to UT Veterinary Medical Center where he died.

The subject was taken into custody by other officers.

So, so, sorry for the loss of this K9 Officer. Penalties for the murder of K9 officers in Tennessee MUST be increased.
