Zeke murdered by handler

Whomever the ‘handler’ was for K-9 officer Zeke, he should be dismissed at the very least. Prosecuted at the very most. Once again, a dog left to roast alive in the back of a patrol vehicle. An “investigation” is ongoing. It’s not in the record who was the person who left Zeke to roast in the back of a vehicle.

After all the articles, all the publicity about these horrendous deaths…they keep on. Many times in literature from the departments the dog is said to have “passed away suddenly” after getting overheated. That’s wordspeak for had a “ heart attack due to heat stroke.”

When asked Chief Watson would not answer the question if any charges will be brought up on the ‘handler’ that left Zeke to roast to death in the back of a squad car on August 15th. They are waiting on the results of an autopsy being done at Texas A&M. Those results ought to be back by now, ‘dontcha think? It’s August 22nd and still no report. Hard to believe.

As if things aren’t bad enough for this case. Zeke was purchased by the Ranger, Tx police department with the other half of Zeke’s purchase coming from private citizens. It doesn’t say how much was paid, but Zeke had only been with the department since earlier this year. It seems the that good people of Ranger, TX should be demanding what happened to their one dog K-9 unit.

     Once again, if you can’t take care of the dog…DON’T GET IT! This isn’t a game to see how many K-9 officers every department can get (and forget in the back of a patrol car and fry!)

       Finally this small police department did what so many larger ones refuse to do. They dismissed the officer that is responsible for Zeke’s death! (However they aren’t releasing his name!)

This is a police department that needs to garb up in a warm fur parka full down the legs, with a fur hat and fur mukluks on. Then they all need to sit in the back of their cruisers for three hours with the windows all rolled up, and no air conditioning or water. Perhaps they should do this quarterly. Perhaps then they will remember.

I doubt it. Anyone who works with a K-9 cop day in and day out, then leaves them in the back of the patrol car either is the most sociopathic individual I’ve ever heard of, or the most stupid. Probably a little of both.Zeke murdered and left in back of hot car 2 - Copy

Zeke was a three year old Dutch Shepard, that was medically retired by a previous department due to a finding of arthritis that likely would have progressed and made working impossible. The department instead put him back into service after purchasing Zeke for $3000.00 half the money was raised by the citizens. Zeke went to work in April.

Rest in peace, little brother Zeke. You did good in your time on earth, even if humans let you down, you never let them down.

God Bless the service dogs

here is the link to the Ranger, Texas Facebook page. I’m sure they would love to hear from the public about their ‘care’ of Zeke.
