WPD mourns K9


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Wilmington Police said goodbye today to a decorated member of the department.

WPD held a memorial service for Huck, one of its K-9s. Huck died last month after a sudden illness.

At the time, he was still in active service, teamed with his handler, Ofc. Carson Sietter. He and Huck won first place at the United States Police Canine Association Region 2 Trials in Burlington last year.

Great Team

Huck was his partner. Always ready to go into a bad situation with no hesitation.He will be missed.

RIP Huck

While others are carrying on about other dramatic news, I think this story has been overlooked. These K9's go thru extensive training. I am truly sorry for your loss Ofc Seitter. May you know he's resting and will forever still be your guardian angel dog!!!

Police dogs

Police dogs do not get nearly enough credit for what they do. They intimidate bad guys without hurting them- unless the bad guys are incredibly stupid.

Honor should go to these intelligent, brave police officers.

What a beautiful dog!

I'm so sorry the WPD lost Officer Huck. I'm also sorry for his handler. I know he must be lost without his partner.
