Police Dog 'Kaos' Is Fighting For His Life After Being Stabbed In The Chest
A police dog underwent emergency surgery after stabbed in the chest during a chase in Queensland on Sunday morning.
Two men have been charged with stabbing the seven-year-old German Shepherd, named Kaos, around 1.30am in Victoria Terrace, in Brisbane's north.
The men fled from a car when officers arrived at Gordon Park after reports of a suspect vehicle, police told 10 daily.
Police arrested three people at the scene before Kaos and an officer set off to locate two others.
Upon locating the pair at Burnaby Terrace, the men allegedly lashed out at Kaos, who received a large stab wound to the chest and was transferred to the vet to be operated on.
In the struggle, a male police officer was also assaulted but did not sustain serious injuries.
On Sunday evening, Queensland Police confirmed Kaos was out of surgery and "recovering nicely".
"He is up and about, however, he remains in a serious condition," police said in a statement.
"All support is being given to his handler at this time."
A 21-year-old Milton man and a 24-year-old Enoggera man have been charged with serious animal cruelty, assaulting a police officer and the unlawful use of a motor vehicle.
They've been denied bail to appear at the Pine Rivers Magistrates Court on Monday.
