VCSO NEWS RELEASE

The Vanderburgh County Sheriff’s Office announces the passing of K-9 Hunter. Hunter (a Yellow Labrador) was placed in service in 2004 and was retired in 2014.

Hunter and his handler Deputy Mike Bishop were responsible for over 1000 pounds of seized marijuana, as well as the seizure of multiple pounds of methampetmaine and cocaine. Hunter enjoyed bringing joy to thousands of kids by performing demonstrations at schools, churches and community events. He was known for his ability to jump relentlessly like a “tigger”.

Sheriff Dave Wedding stated, “Hunter was a real handful, but Deputy Mike Bishop’s ability to effectively channel that dog’s energy resulted in a career of impressive narcotics seizures. I thank Hunter for his decade of service to the Sheriff’s Office and to the citizens of Vanderburgh County.”
