Meet One of Davis's Police K-9 Officers – Hurricane
You may have heard or read about that scary carjacking (though not here, we only write about happy things) in south Davis that ended hours later in a cornfield south of town. We were amused to hear that the criminal was able to outfox (note the canine pun) officers on foot and in the sky (CHP helicopter), but a German shepherd by the name of Hurricane (or Cane, to his fans – seen to the left) and his handler, Davis Police Officer Lee Hatfield, quickly brought the bad guy to heel (heh-heh).
He is trained in protection work, narcotics detection, and tracking. When working, Hurricane is intense and focused, but on his time off his favorite activities are eating and sleeping. Hurricane is also a playful and social dog that loves meeting new people, swimming, and playing with his toys.
Cane’s K-9 buddy within the DPD is another, equally talented German shepherd named Atto. But unless you’re nocturnal, you’re not likely to meet these two, as they tend to work nights.
Here’s a cute video of Cane soaking up some well-deserved love recently at the Davis Senior Center.
