K9 Kyro was shot after he mistook his handler for a suspect while performing a track in a heavily wooded area while assisting the Dooly County Sheriff's Office.

Kyro bit his handler's calf and failed to release, causing severe damage to his handler's leg. His handler was forced to shoot Kyro in order to prevent further injury.

K9 Kyro had served with the Houston County Sheriff's Office for three years.
