K9 Sieger died after ingesting the rodent poison sodium fluoroacetate while searching a liquor store at 45 East Garfield Boulevard.

He and his handler had been dispatched to the location for a burglar alarm and located an open door. K9 Sieger made his way downstairs during the search and began to eat chunks of bread on the floor. The bread had been laced with the rodent poison, causing Sieger to become ill. He was immediately taken to a local animal hospital where he died.

K9 had served with the Chicago Police Department for 7-1/2 years and was only six months short of being retired.
