EVANSVILLE, Ind (WEHT) – An Evansville Police Department K9 has died after suffering a medical emergency on Tuesday.
Officers say that K9 Abot was training on Monday when he wasn’t acting like himself and became lethargic. On Tuesday, around 6 p.m., they said that things took a turn for the worse.
Officers and dispatchers called several area veterinarians and nearly all were closed. A team effort got K9 Abot to Village East in Evansville and then he was transferred to a facility in Louisville.
The specialist found several tumors around his heart and spleen, forcing Abot to be euthanized. He served seven and a half years with the EPD.
K9 Abot will be laid to rest behind his K9 brother Bobi.
