‘Angry piece of flesh’: Amputee’s right leg plays key part in VA malpractice suit | The Seattle Times

“We’ve never had such a large piece before, and the dogs react differently,” Olson said. “They normally don’t come across that in training. But in disaster-type situations, it’s not unusual to come across larger body parts, so this definitely helped our dogs to be able to detect those.”

After receiving Kuncl’s gift, the group protected the leg and used it sparingly during specialized training scenarios.

“We kept it wrapped in several layers of plastic and in plastic bags and in a freezer,” Olson said.And that unintentionally helped to preserve the leg as evidence.

“That wasn’t the reason I gave them my leg,” Kuncl said. “It was just one of the few times in my life that I did things for the right reason, and it turned around to benefit me.”
