Omaha Police K-9 has cancer
Omaha Police Bomb K-9 Duk has cancer, according to Omaha Police tweets Monday.
In a tweet on OPD's official Twitter account, the agency said a lump was found near Duk’s abdomen about one month ago.
“Over the last couple weeks, it was clear he was not right, and late last week a biopsy confirmed what we feared — cancer.”
The cancer is untreatable, they said.
Duk has worked with the department at various venues the last four years: Eppley Airport, the College World Series, the Olympic Swim Trials, “plus countless concerts,” just to list a few, according to Omaha Police Lt. Jay Leavitt.
