Injured police dog back on job
Photo submitted K-9 Cody has recovered.
DARLINGTON - It was May 25 and Lafayette County's canine officer, Cody, and his handler, Deputy Fred Norder, were on their seventh traffic stop of the day. Just as Norder hit his lights, a computer program in his squad malfunctioned, causing the doors to fly open on Wisconsin 151, just between Belmont and Platteville. As Cody is trained to do, he jumped out and was severely injured.
