Yahoo! National News - Tue, 08/26/2014 - 05:12
By Heide Brandes OKLAHOMA CITY (Reuters) - An Oklahoma City police dog stabbed multiple times is expected to survive wounds it incurred while trying to subdue a suspect who led police on a high-speed car chase and then was shot dead by an officer, police said on Monday. "They say he's going to make it, but whether or not he (the dog) returns to duty remains to be seen," Oklahoma City Police Captain Dexter Nelson said.

NTSB handout shows inspectors survey the wreckage of a UPS Airbus A300 cargo plane which crashed near the airport in BirminghamNational Transportation Safety Board told United Parcel Service Inc and its pilots union on Monday that they can no longer take part in the investigation of a 2013 crash that killed two UPS pilots. The agency said in a statement that the Independent Pilots Association and UPS Airlines had violated a participation agreement by publicly commenting on the investigation into the Birmingham, Alabama, crash before the board's public meeting on its cause. The decision bars UPS and the union from the investigation into the crash of an A300-600 cargo plane as it tried to land in August 2013. Pilot Cerea Beal Jr. and first officer Shanda Fanning were killed.
