Camilla-- Eagle, the K-9 officer for the Southwest Georgia Drug Task Force is facing a death sentence. 

Mitchell County commissioners voted to have the aggressive dog euthanized for liability reasons. Eagle's handler, no longer with the Drug Task Force,  wants to take the dog with him. 

Grady County Sheriff Harry Young, whose jurisdiction the drug task force also serves, says Eagle has not only been a dependable officer- but is a very valuable dog.  

 "He's already trained. Of course he's a very aggressive dog and that's why the trainer who's with him should stay with him," Young said.

Eagle's handler, John Uppole, says he's agreed to sign an agreement to accept all liability if they'll let him have the dog.
