Kuno, a Belgian Shepherd Malinois, has been awarded the People's Dispensary for Sick Animals (PDSA) Dickin Medal, the animal equivalent of the prestigious Victoria Cross, for his outstanding bravery and devotion to duty demonstrated during a 2019 raid on a fortified Al Qaeda compound.

As a multipurpose canine, Kuno's job involved finding explosives, locating weapons caches, and engaging enemies in combat.

Kuno, just four years old at the time of the compound raid, had already proven his worth in the early stages of the assault, taking out an insurgent and discovering various weapons and explosives hidden in the compound.

Only for gunman to run out of bullets as he stands over him. CCTV shows a gunman standing over victim and attempting to shoot. A few minutes later, Di Bari is seen running along the street being chased by the gunman who is firing wildly at him, hitting several parked cars and missing his target.

Unable to move without potentially taking casualties, Kuno's handler turned to him. The dog took off at the gunman, who fired wildly into the night at the animal running full speed toward him.

Kuno was shot twice in his hind legs, with one bullet nearly missing a critical artery, but he did not halt his attack until the threat was neutralized. And, he continued to fight after that, relenting only when the mission was finished.

Kuno was hurt badly. His handler and a medic patched the dog up as best they could and then evacuated him to the US Army Veterinary Treatment Facility in Afghanistan.

Trump’s election fraud allegations suggest military voters uniformly supported him. It’s not so.

  Trump’s election fraud allegations suggest military voters uniformly supported him. It’s not so. Three things to know about how active-duty military and veterans vote. For instance, in Georgia, Trump alleged without evidence that thousands of military mail-in ballots are “missing,” as if counting such ballots would automatically shift the state’s vote toward him. And in Michigan, the campaign submitted one anonymous poll worker’s affidavit alleging, with no evidence, that too many military mail-in ballots were marked for Democrats. Even before Election Day, the president made much about an incident in Pennsylvania where nine military mail-in ballots were apparently discarded, falsely claiming that they were all marked “Trump.

Given the severity of his wounds, Kuno required multiple life-saving operations. One of his hind legs and part of his other rear paw had to be amputated.

Kuno later returned to the UK for recovery and rehabilitation. The now retired dog has since been outfitted with prosthetic limbs.

This heroic canine left a lasting impact on the Army veterinarians who treated him. "Kuno's unstoppable drive and spirit made Kuno so special to me," US Army Lt. Col. Leah Smith, commander of the 149th Veterinary Detachment (Forward 2), said.

"He is the epitome of what we hope to be as soldiers, self-sacrificing, determined, and unwavering in carrying out the mission," she added.

The second-year Denver DC was hospitalized last week but discharged Sunday. Donatell, 63, has been battling COVID-19 symptoms since Oct. 31 and has missed the past three games.

Kuno is the 72nd animal to received the PDSA Dickin Medal. He joins the ranks of not just outstanding canines, but also horses, pigeons, and a cat.

"I'm delighted that Kuno will receive the PDSA Dickin Medal," British Defense Secretary Ben Wallace said in a statement. "It is testament to his training, tireless bravery and devotion to duty which undoubtedly saved lives that day."

"I am very proud of the role our military working dogs play on operations at home and abroad," he added. "Kuno's story reminds us of the lengths these animals go to keep us all safe."
