So sad. A police dog named Diesel was killed in the line of duty, in an antiterrorism raid in France. Fans around the world are mourning the brave pup who gave his life in the name of freedom.
Diesel, an assault and explosive search dog, lost his life after getting shot during a raid in Saint-Denis, a suburb of Paris, on Nov. 18. The operation, which targeted the suspected mastermind behind Nov. 13’s terrorist attacks which killed 129, resulted in the death of two terror suspects, the arrest of seven more, and the minor injury of five officers. Sadly, though, Diesel did not make it out alive, and fans have taken to Twitter to express their gratitude to the brave K-9 hero.
RIP #Dieseldog. You made the ultimate sacrifice 😢
