Shared by a bogus Fakebook group named We Love Animals. Knew this was fake because I remembered seeing this photo two years ago!
“K-9 Nicky was killed in the line of duty” is false.
- This was in 2017.
- The dog is actually a male, named Hunter, and not a female named Nicky.
- The dog died of liver cancer, and was not killed in the line of duty.
The Fakebook group We Love Animals is a bogus web page, possibly based in Slovenia, that shares endless heartwarming animal stores with the refrain “Let’s see how many shares we get”.
They also shared this one – “These two fawns were rescued from drowning in flood waters by 16-year old Tyler Domeier”.
Note the plea for viral sharing “How many people will ‘Share’ this?”
This was actually 5 years ago. Tyler is now 21 years old in 2001, a father and a college student in Minnesota.
Both of these fake posts were shared recently on Fakebook, and both posts are fake. I didn’t bother to check any other posts as the first two I checked were bogus.
