A K-9 was killed
when she darted into the path of a tractor trailer. ''Yentl'' was a
2-year-old Belgian Malinois used for drug detection and tracking, by the
Genesee County Sheriff's Department. The dog died just before midnight
Tuesday after running from her handler outside the sheriff's office.
Yentl was put in a patrol car and was en route to the Batavia Animal
Hospital when she died, quoted Sheriff Gary Maha. ''She made a lot of
hits for us, a lot of drug arrests,'' Maha said. Yentl was used
throughout the county and also assisted surrounding county police
agencies when needed. She is sadly missed.
My Sheriff let
me know what you have said and done. Thank
You from the bottom
of my heart. It is great to be
appreciated by so
many. Yentl was born in Holland.
She was 2 years
old around October of this year. Our Administrator are
the best. I have been so supported
by them during all
training and work with Yentl
and I will always
be grateful. Yentl has
more in 9 months that many do in their whole career.
Again I thank You
for your love of K-9's
and your support.
Brian and Family
Sheriff Gary T. Maha
