VINCENNES, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — The Vincennes Police Department announced Wednesday evening the death of K9 Officer Gary.

K9 Officer Gary was brought to a vet where he was stabilized and prepared to go to Purdue. The police department says the K9 Officer suffered another seizure prior to leaving, and it was determined he would not survive the trip.
The difficult decision was made at that time to put Gary down. The police department said this was a very unexpected loss.
