VIDEO: Man Wanted for Killing Texas K-9 Captured Near Dallas

A five-day manhunt for a suspect in the killing of a Texas constable's K-9 ended Saturday with the man's capture in the Dallas suburb of Garland.

Michael Paul Koch of Grand Saline was arrested on warrants of interfering with a police service animal through killing and evading arrest, the Smith County Sheriff's Office told the Associated Press.

The case involves Tuesday's slaying of a K-9 named Ogar after a constable stopped a vehicle near Lindale, 80 miles southeast of Dallas. Investigators say Koch was in the vehicle and ran into some woods. Ogar followed and was shot to death.

Here again the dog has been killed. I think that the officer needs to be with them for backup in case things go south. Some of these perps that are on god knows what drugs have almost super human strength.
