In Memory of K-9 Kye
On August 25, 2014 Belgian German Shepherd, K-9 Kye with the Oklahoma City Police Department was laid to rest with full honors after being killed in the line of duty. During the funeral service Kye’s human partner, Staff Sergeant Ryan Stark, leaned over the 3-year-old dog’s flag-draped casket to give his K-9 protector a final goodbye. K9 Kye was not wearing a bullet and stab protective vest.
