  • The Herkimer Police Department has released a statement on its Facebook page confirming Ape, the FBI K-9 who was shot and killed on March 14, was wearing a ballistic vest.
    “We want to clear the air about the misconception that Ape was not wearing a vest. Ape was in fact wearing a ballistic vest during this incident. His vest was removed as Ape was transported to the vet. The vest was removed to allow the FBI medic and his handler to perform life-saving aid. K-9 vests are made from the same ballistic materials that our vests are made from. Unfortunately, ballistic vests do not stop everything,” the statement reads.
