TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. — A Michigan K-9 died after he was struck by a car during a training exercise last Friday.

The Traverse City Record Eagle reports that Antrim County K-9 Ori, a 16-month-old German shepherd, was practicing off-lead obedience with his handler when he was struck and killed. Ori started his duties on Oct. 30.
