WADSWORTH, Ohio (WJW) – A Wadsworth K-9 officer got a written reprimand after attempting to “apprehend a skunk” on Wednesday.
According to a written reprimand that was posted to the Wadsworth Police Department Facebook page, K-9 Zoro was sprayed by the skunk, who escaped. The reprimand document was posted with the caption, “Please see attached… 🦨🦨🦨.”
According to the violation description, “Officer Zoro engaged in conduct unbecoming of a K-9 Officer by attempting to apprehend a skunk. The suspect resisted arrest, spraying K-9 Zoro, and ultimately managing to escape. The resulting odor created a hostile work environment for his handler and coworkers.”
K-9 Zoro does understand the seriousness of his actions, as his written reprimand was signed by both his supervisor, Sergeant Petit, and with a paw print.
