Photos: See Aurora Cops Repeatedly Attacked by Police Dogs -- For a Good Cause

The folks who manage the Aurora Police Department Facebook page have built a reputation for sharing unusual and interesting pics, including the ones that inspired our galleries spotlighting badass Aurora cops of the '50s, the '70s and the '80s. But its latest collection may its quirkiest yet -- photos from a recent fundraiser at Dora's Mexican Restaurant & Lounge for the APD's K9 unit in which officers are repeatedly attacked by the police dogs with which they work. Check out a sampling of the action-packed shots below and click here to see the complete album.
