Here's what Southern Indiana Police Canine Association had to say about his passing:

It is with a very heavy heart and great sadness that we would like to announce the passing of one hell of a police dog, retired EPD K-9 Bubba.

K-9 Bubba served with his Handler, Det. Wayne Hunt, from 2006 to 2012 in the Joint Task Force Narcotics Unit. Bubba was 14 years old and was a rescue from a local animal shelter. K-9 Bubba has enjoyed retirement living with now, Sergeant Wayne Hunt and his family since 2012.

K-9 Bubba was laid to rest this evening at the FOP PAL Camp Cemetery alongside all the other K-9’s that have served our region. Our heart felt condolences go out to the Hunt Family. K-9 Bubba may be gone but he certainly will not be forgotten.
