WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — The Wilmington City Council decided a Wilmington police dog will soon have a new home.
Council members voted to donate Kaas to the Fair Bluff Police Department as surplus property. Kaas is the police dog involved in a controversial bite last fall.
The SBI and a Grand Jury cleared Kaas’s handler, Stafford Brister, of any wrong doing. But he returned to duty as a patrol officer not with the K-9 unit.
Kaas bit a suspect after Brister put the dog into the man’s car after a chase Halloween night.
