K9 Loki

Submitted by Chief Pat Burton

Licking Police Department

On the evening of August 8, 2019, K9 Loki was discovered seizing in his kennel, at his handler’s residence. A short time later K9 Loki was deceased. K9 Loki’s body was transported to the University of Missouri - Columbia's Veterinary Medical Diagnostic Laboratory where an autopsy was performed. On August 20, 2019, this office received the results from the autopsy. The cause of death was unsubstantiated but believed to have been the result of overheating of the body, caused from prolonged seizing. 
Our department and community lost a great asset and I am personally heart broken, as are all the members of the department, with the loss of K9 Loki. K9 Loki will be missed by all who knew him.
There was no indication of foul play or mistreatment discovered in the investigation.
