Stalker gets his vest

ALBERT LEA, Minn.- It’s been about six months since the Freeborn County Sheriff’s Office got their K9, Stalker. He recently received a gift that could save his life in the field.

His vest weighs about 6 pounds and costs around $1,500. Many community members donated to help provide it.

His handler Adam McKane says that he’s very thankful for this donation because Stalker is one of them and making sure he’s safe on the job is a priority of his.

“He’s kind of going into an unknown place most times so in the event that that person would have a knife or a gun, this hopefully will just be an added layer of protection,” said McKane.

Stalker can only wear the vest for 30 minutes at a time.
