The United States Navy SEALs are investigating an incident where a practice dummy used in a military dog exercise was dressed in former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s uniform.
As BBC reports, several videos filmed at the National Navy Seal Museum in Florida have been uploaded to Twitter showing various military dogs attacking the training dummy.
The Navy Seals released a statement saying the incident, which took place in 2019, was “completely inconsistent” with its core values.
Watch the videos below:
In another video, after “Navy SEALs and Navy SEAL dogs take down Colin Kaepernick for not standing during National Anthem,” he moans something like, "Oh man, I will stand” #BecauseFlorida https://t.co/uZ3ervZguB pic.twitter.com/6vi1uCGIt5

The U.S. Navy SEALs shared a statement clarifying “no active-duty Navy personnel” were involved.
“We became aware today of a video of a Navy Seal Museum event posted last year,” the Navy Seals said.
“The inherent message of this video is completely inconsistent with the values and ethos of Naval Special Warfare and the US Navy,” the statement continued.
And, “We are investigating the matter fully and initial indications are that there were no active-duty Navy personnel or equipment involved with this independent organization’s event.”
