K-9 Officer Kota and his handler Corporal Brittney Kotynski-Neer will receive an award Thursday from the Woodman of the World Chapter 34. The recognition comes just months after an incident when Kota was injured while apprehending a suspect on a call for a breaking and entering. Since the incident in January, Kota has undergone three surgeries to repair a broken leg and countless hours of rehabilitation. Corporal Neer has dedicated her time to attending rehab sessions and working with her K9 partner in an effort to get him back on his paws.
Members of the media are invited to attend the dinner and awards ceremony on Thursday, April 17th at 6:30 p.m. in the Community Center behind the Throx Country Store on Senseny Road. We hope you can join us.
