After just two months of service, a Federal explosives detection canine died while en route to an assignment at the Detroit Branch of the Federal Reserve Bank, reported Wednesday's publication of Law Officer.com.
On Monday, K9 "Remi," a German shepherd, was ejected through the window of her handler's vehicle after the car slid into a concrete barrier after hitting ice.
Remi died after another car subsequently hit her; that car fled the scene.
