Dog Days of Summer – Meet New York State Police K9 Wilder

New York State Police K9 Wilder and his handler are stationed in the Central New York city of Oneida.

Wilder is trained in narcotics detection.

Wilder is named in honor of Trooper Carl T. Wilder who was shot and left for dead on the Tuxedo-Greenwood Lake Highway on September 7, 1928.

When Trooper Wilder was found, barely alive, he was holding a necktie in his hand, thought to be that of his assailant.  He was not able to respond when asked for information about who shot him.  The 25-year old died a short time later.

It is believed that Wilder was killed by bootleggers near the lake.

A former member of the United States Military Academy’s West Point Band, Wilder was one of the first troopers killed in the line of duty.

His riderless horse, Kingston, led his funeral procession.
