Hero Military Working Dogs

"The last moments of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi’s life were spent being chased down a dark underground tunnel by military dogs."

Rest of the story here:

Hope the injured dog will be ok.

A can not think of better ending for such a criminal. Sounds like dogs play a big role in catching terrorists. Those dogs and handlers saved countless lives- true heros. Great noses!

I was in an IGP Seminar when that news broke. It was special being with people who really care about working dogs while hearing about it. Glad the K9 is ok <3

Amen.

They are talking about releasing an edited video of the chase. Oh would I like to see that. Bravo, dogs!

When/if the video is released we can all see it on a news site.Graphic videos aren't allowed.
I agree that the handlers and their dogs are true heroes.I'm so glad none of them were seriously injured.

It sounds like a very dangerous situation for the dog- could have gone very wrong if the explosives were triggered when he was closer. Glad everyone was OK. Depending on what that video shows, it could be truly heartwrenching with kids involved- who had no choice, and must have been small enough to be dragged, carried.

Horribly dangerous. Thank God the dogs made it out OK.

What happened to the kids is beyond heartbreaking--Baghdadi dragged them with him and blew them up when he blew himself up.
