K9 Danger was struck and killed by a train on the Lake Shore and Michigan Railway tracks near West 17th Street in Chicago, Illinois.

Danger and his handler were patrolling the railroad yard when Danger suddenly started chasing a cat. The cat and Danger both ran in front of an oncoming train and were killed.

K9 Danger had been rescued by his handler three years earlier after several boys tied a can to his tail. His handler, a special officer for the railroad, trained him to search for trespassers on the railroad property and the two patrolled the yards together for three years.
