FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. — The U.S. Navy is investigating a video in which military work dogs attacked a “Colin Kaepernick stand-in” during a demonstration at a Navy Seal Museum fundraiser.

The event happened last year at the museum in Fort Pierce, Florida, but the video resurfaced over the weekend.

On Sunday, the U.S. Navy said in a statement that it appears no active-duty personnel were involved.

The videos show dogs attack a man in heavy padding wearing a Kaepernick jersey. Rifle-carrying men in fatigues approach him yelling, “On your belly.” He replies, “Oh, man, I will stand," as the crowd laughs.
