Bradenton Police K9 Liberty recovers after snake bite during training

K9 Liberty is a born tracker. And as a K9 with the Bradenton Police Department, she and Detective Lixa Moyett work to track down the scent of missing persons.

During annual training in Tallahassee, K9 Liberty waded in shallow water and suddenly let out a yelp, signaling she needed help. 

“It was scary. It was very noticeable and distinct to the snake bites,” said Detective Moyett.

Within minutes, she was at a local veterinarian’s office where the doctor said she was bitten by a Cotton Mouth snake.
