K-9 Officer Dies After Being Left in Back Of Patrol Car

A police K-9 has died after investigators said its owner left the dog in the back of a patrol car for nearly three hours.

The Cherokee County Marshal’s Office and the Cherokee Sheriff’s Office were called out to the home of a Cherokee County School Police officer Friday after getting a call that the police K-9 had died.

The officer told investigators he arrived home around 4:15 p.m. and left the 4-year-old Belgian Malinois named Inca in the back of the car with the engine still running while he dealt with another dog inside his home.

Around 7 p.m. the officer remembered he left Inca in the car and found the dog had died.

Investigators said Inca will be taken to The University of Georgia for a necropsy. The investigation in Inca’s death continues.
