Sheriff's K-9 now equipped with bulletproof vest


Donna Morgan is an animal lover.

"I can't watch a movie when an animal is being killed," she explained.

One night, Morgan had her television on to the popular "America's Most Wanted." It was showing footage of a K-9 going into a crime scene and, although she didn't want to, the curiosity of what happened next drew her in.

The result was the suspect shooting the dog, killing him and leaving that implant in Morgan's mind.
