GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — A 7-year-old boy with a big heart is helping the Green Bay Police Department deal with the loss of one of its police dogs.
Four-year-old Cops died earlier this month after battling some serious medical issues. When Ethan Engum heard about the dog's death, he decided to raise money to help the department pay for a new K9.
Ethan started a GoFundMe page to raise the money and on Sunday, he delivered a $520 check to the police department.
Officer Derek Wicklund says Ethan's effort rejuvenates a department that's dealing with the dog's death. Wicklund tells WBAY-TV it makes him want to come to work because it reflects the good in people, not just the bad.
Ethan's goal is to raise $12,000 for the department's K9 program.
