    Two dogs strangled during search for undocumented immigrants in Texas Gulf Coast

    Two dogs strangled during search for undocumented immigrants in Texas Gulf Coast

    Two dogs were strangled to death by a suspected undocumented immigrant during a pursuit Saturday night in the Texas Gulf Coast.

    The dogs were on loan to law enforcement agents and were being used to track down a number of people suspected of being in the United States illegally, according to a Facebook post on Sunday by Aransas County, Texas, Sheriff Bill Mills.

    In a phone call with the Corpus Christi Caller-Times, Mills said an officer tried to pull over a black Ford pickup just north of Holiday Beach on State Highway 35 but it sped away.

    The truck left the roadway and then stopped in an area filled with thick brush. Mills said about 14 to 16 people scattered from the truck on foot. Law enforcement began to round up the fleeing suspects and detained several individuals suspected of being in the country illegally.

    Officers from the Aransas County Sheriff's Office were joined by agents from U.S. Customs and Border Protection, officers from the Texas Department of Public Safety and the Refugio County Sheriff's Office, and game wardens from the Texas Department of Wildlife.

    One of the men who fled from the truck was hiding in the thick brush and was ordered to come out, but he told the officers in Spanish, "If you want me, come and get me," Mills wrote in his post.

    That's when the two dogs were found dead. They appeared to have been strangled with their tracking collars.

    Mills wrote that the dogs had been loaned to law enforcement for the search by Joe Braman, a kennel owner and a commissioned deputy with the Refugio County Sheriff's Office.

    Braman said Sunday that although he houses dogs from the Refugio County Sheriff's Office at his kennel, the two dogs killed Saturday were his. The two dogs were females — one was 8 years old and named Grunt, the other was 3 and named Nell. He said they were not as aggressive as the dogs trained specifically for law enforcement. Instead, their training focused on tracking.

    "The're not real aggressive dogs — they'll just hold someone at bay until you get there," Braman said of Grunt and Nell. "I just wasn't able to get there quick enough."

    The dogs were a mix of black and tan coonhound, bluetick coonhound, and redtick coonhound that Braman has been breeding for years.

    "I thought this was just going to be a track down and arrest-type scenario," he said. "If it's just a bailout, the majority of the time they just have a backpack full of tuna fish or something and they're running, trying to go find work up north. This escalated past that."
    The dogs had been used before to help find individuals with dementia or Alzheimer's disease who had wandered off.

    Five men and a woman who fled from the pickup were detained and turned over to CBP agents, Mills said. They were from Guatemala, Honduras and Mexico, and Mills said at least one of the men had tattoos that led officers to believe he was gang-affiliated.

    Fleeing Illegal Immigrants Killed 2 Tracking Dogs, Says Texas Sheriff


    September 3, 2018




    The case took place north of Holiday Beach, more than 150 miles north of the Texas border, when state and local police were trying to stop a human smuggling attempt, the Aransas County Sheriff’s Office revealed in a prepared statement. A black Ford truck was headed north on Interstate 35 as it was trying to flee law enforcement when it crashed through some fencing and stopped near a brushy area. Between 14 and 16 individuals reportedly ran from the vehicle.


    Authorities responded to the scene with a group of tracking dogs from a private kennel. According to police, the dogs are not trained to bite like K-9 officers–but are used for search and rescue operations.

    Authorities were able to find five of the individuals in the brush. A sixth man turned violent, telling law enforcement “if you want me, come and get me,” police said. After his arrest, the man was described as bearing a cartel tattoo among the strangled bodies of two tracking dogs.


    In the agency’s statement, Sheriff Bill Mills said the case serves as a reminder to officers:

    [W]e are still dealing with individuals who may have questionable immigration status these encounters can turn just as violent as any domestic dispute we respond to. And while every effort is being taken to ensure everyone’s safety, we are reminded that not everyone we encounter shows the same level of respect for the rule of law and or life even for highly trained animals.

    I guess that means 8-10 of the illegal aliens escaped!

    The picture above appears to be a Dutch or German Shepherd which is two of the dogs of choice for K-9 duty. They are specifically trained to assist police and their duties could include: searching for drugs and explosives, locating missing people, finding crime scene evidence, and attacking people targeted by the police.


    Excerpt:



    • TYSON
      254

    The Black and Tan Coonhound is a working dog. It is accustomed to difficult terrains and trails, and the tree games of summer or winter seasons. The Coonhound hunting skills are pure, working by scent alone.

    PHYSICAL CHARACTERISTICS


    The eager, amicable, and alert expression of the Coonhound makes it very lovable. With its tail and head held high, the Coonhound moves about with graceful strides. Its long structure is moderately bony, but its build gives it strength, speed, and agility.

    The Black and Tan Coonhound's coat, meanwhile, is dense and short, which provides protection in all kinds of weather. Its deep muzzle provides sufficient room for its olfactory apparatus, while its deep voice assists the hunter in finding the dog when it has trapped the game. It also has long ears that help stir up ground scents.

    PERSONALITY AND TEMPERAMENT


    The Black and Tan Coonhound is not the typical house dog, but it still makes a notable and unusual pet. The dog remains quiet, calm, mellow, and friendly indoors, but outdoors, its hunting instincts become dominant -- once tracking begins, it is unwilling to let go of a trail.

    This stubborn, independent, and strong dog sometimes howls and bays, shows reticence with strangers, though it is calm and tolerant with kids.
