A Czech German shepherd named Ape had been on tactical duty with the FBI for about two weeks when he was shot and killed by a gunman suspected in the deaths of four people. "We were trying to do everything we could to try to save its life," said veterinarian Emily Green, part of a team of clinicians who worked to save the dog. Ape died soon after arriving at the clinic, and he will be buried and memorialized at FBI headquarters. "Ape was doing what he was trained to do and made the ultimate sacrifice for his team," according to an FBI statement. "His actions were heroic."
