Gwinnett County K-9 Officer “Eros” has retired, according to the Gwinnett Daily Post.

After five years of serving the Gwinnett County Police Department as one of its K-9 officers, the dog known around the law enforcement agency as “Eros” is entering retirement.

Last week, Gwinnett County commissioners approved the police department’s request to retire Eros, a black and tan German Shepherd who joined the department in 2013. Eros will spend his remaining days at home with his handler, Cpl. Brandon Townley.

Department officials said health concerns prompted the request to retire the K-9 from service. His time patrolling Gwinnett County ended Tuesday, when he was removed from service on the same day that commissioners granted his retirement.

“While he has served the Gwinnett County Police Department and our community with honor, our veterinarian has recommended that K-9 Eros be retired,” Police Chief Butch Ayers told commissioners on Tuesday.

Gwinnett County Animal Shelter is waiving adoption fees for all dogs and cats through June 30, 2018, according to the AJC.

Dogs and cats give birth to litters in high volumes during the spring and summer months, often filling local shelters with adoptable animals. Gwinnett County shelter staff decided to offer free adoptions to make room for as many animals as possible during the high volume season, a release said.

The shelter currently has nearly 200 animals in its custody, from puppies and kittens to senior dogs and cats. A rabbit and a small rooster are also available for adoption.

All animals are spayed or neutered before they go home with their new owner. They also receive a medical exam, vaccinations and a microchip.

Animal protection organizations are asking Governor Deal to end the Georgia DNR “Coyote Challenge,” according to the Gainesville Times.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported the Humane Society of the United States and other groups recently sent letters urging Gov. Nathan Deal to cancel the event

During the six-month period from March to August the challenge offers Georgia residents the chance to win a lifetime hunting license.

“Scientific evidence does not support the notion that indiscriminately killing coyotes through events such as the Georgia Coyote Challenge is an effective wildlife management practice,” said Camilla Fox, executive director of Project Coyote, a national organization based in Marin County, Calif..

John Bowers, chief of game management for Georgia Wildlife Resources Division of Georgia Department of Natural Resources, said population control is not the point of the Coyote Challenge.

“The purpose is to complement and highlight the existing lethal removal of coyotes by hunters and trappers,” he said. “They can do that year round.”
