Huk, a Jacksonville Sheriff's Office police dog, continues to recover after being shot three times following a police chase that ended in a crash Friday afternoon near the Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens.

Veterinarians posted a condition update Sunday on Facebook about the veteran police dog that sustained multiple other injuries during the incident that the Sheriff's Office said also resulted in the deaths of two of three suspects.

No human police officers or civilians were injured in the incident, which forced a temporary lockdown at the zoo.
