Oklahoma City Police K9 Kye died from stab wounds sustained the previous day while attempting a take down on a subject who had led officers on two separate pursuits.

Officers and troopers had pursued the subject for over 30 minutes before he crashed on I-35, at the exit for Goldsby. He then fled on foot, at which point K9 Kye was released.

As Kye bit the subject, the man held onto him and stabbed him several times. Kye’s handler was unable to separate them and fatally shot the subject when he refused to drop the knife.

Kye was transported to an animal hospital where he died the following day.

A funeral with full police honors was held for Kye.

  • May you rest in peace, Kye. May God hold your partner and your Family in His hands as they grieve. From a grateful LEOW.

    “I am a deputy in a canine crew.
    I’ve been trained to see it through.
    When danger’s near my ears perk up,
    they taught me that as a little pup.

    I’m often there to protect your rights,
    my presence sometimes hinders fights.
    I never attack with thought to kill,
    when subduing one, my job I fill.

    I never worry a single thought,
    as to how I’ll fare at a certain spot.
    The love I have for a handler’s care,
    is all I need, each day to fare.
    And if some day my luck turns bad,
    I’ll relish all the joys I’ve had.

    To be with men who stand for
    good, in a special kind of brotherhood.
    The story’s end by now you know,
    of how I tried for a better show.

    I did my best, though I did fall,
    when I was called and gave my all.”
