Far more interested in a two-foot mammoth smoked bone than in the City and County officials gathered to honor him, Police Service Dog Mondo gratefully accepted his recognition as June’s “Woodlander of the Month.”
Mondo was selected to receive the award for his courageous apprehension of a suspected car thief last month.
According to his trainer and partner, Woodland Police K9 Officer Brian Olson, who was injured while taking the suspect into custody, Mondo would say “I was just doing my job like any other member of the police force.”
“We have honored a lot of great people as ‘Woodlander of the Month,’ said Yolo County Supervisor Matt Rexroad, one of the co-sponsors of the monthly award. “But without a doubt, Mondo is the coolest recipient we have ever had.”
