That nut who killed four people in Herkimer and Mohawk also murdered this gorgeous FBI dog.I am not sure why the agents would risk this beautiful creature -- they had to know the guy had nothing to lose and there was a strong likelihood the dog would be shot. Ape did not have the benefit of a gun; it was not a fair fight. Why didn't they just storm in and shoot the creep? It makes no sense. RIP Ape. Once again, a dog is the hero.
