CHICO, Calif. — A police dog still considered to be on active duty, but sidelined last week with an aggressive form of cancer, was humanely euthanized Wednesday night.

Toko, a German shepherd who joined the Chico Police Department in the fall of 2002, was 9 years old. According to a department news release, Toko wasn't expected to survive advanced medical procedures to treat the cancer.
