Amazing Speedy K-9 Unit Ends Police Pursuit After Taking Down Fleeing Suspect

Look at him fly!

A man who reportedly assaulted a police officer led authorities to go on a wild chase in California on Monday evening. The police pursuit started from Santa Ana to Irvine, where it ended badly for the suspect.

The suspect, later on, identified as Antonio Padilla, Jr., ditched a car he’d carjacked earlier to escape authorities. But what he didn’t expect was that a really fast K-9 unit would take him down.

The K-9 officer credited for the apprehension of Padilla was Puskas. The police dog may have shown his bravery in this hot case but unfortunately, Puskas nearly lost all his teeth (but canines intact) during the attack.

Puskas was badly injured while taking down the suspect.

On Tuesday morning, Puskas went through dental surgery.

The latest update stated that Puskas should be able to go home with his handler tonight.

Puskas is expected to go back to work after a break for a few weeks.

Meanwhile, police reports stated that Padilla almost hit a policewoman at Garden Grove with his truck on Feb. 18.

Garden Grove Police Lt. Carl Whitney said that a motor officer stopped Padilla and wrote him a traffic citation. However, Padilla backed his truck almost hitting the policewoman. Padilla fled the scene and wasn’t found until Monday evening, when the chase started.

“For most of us, they’re just a convenience. For wildlife, they are killers,” said Environment Secretary Michael Gove.

The United Kingdom is taking a big step towards addressing pollution by banning plastic drinking straws across the country in the near future. According to Environment Secretary Michael Gove, this is being done to resolve serious environmental concerns.

In a report by the Marine Conservation Society, it is estimated that UK gets about 8.5 billion straws every year and these straws are among the top 10 waste items found during beach cleanups. Straws – which usually require over two centuries to disintegrate - are likewise hazardous to marine life since sea creatures mistake them for food.

Banning plastic straws is a good thing.
