Secret Service Dog Falls to Death at Biden Event

The Secret Service says one of its canines fell to its death at a New Orleans fundraiser where Vice President Joe Biden was speaking.

Secret Service spokesman Ed Donovan says the dog was doing a security sweep Saturday of a parking garage next to the Ritz-Carlton. That's where Biden was attending a fundraiser for Louisiana Sen. Mary Landrieu's re-election campaign.

The Secret Service said the death was a tragic accident. Law enforcement officials aren't releasing the name or gender of the dog.

8. Actually you may not be far from the reason

The working dogs live with their handlers and family.

5. Totally fishy

and so secretive as to the details. Animals don't "just fall" to their death for
no reason out of the blue.

Maybe the dog knew too much, had loose lips, and was "suicided" ??

9. They should have an on leash policy when working high rises.

A few years ago an NOPD dog fell down an elevator shaft (I think) and died.

11. Toxicology screenings on all agents involved in this dogs life...

If one thing is for sure, we've learned recently that there is a lapse in judgement and a penchant for late night ramblings among the security details within the Secret Service.

Tox screens for everyone involved, walking papers for everyone who didn't study...
