The Mojis and Their Dog King on Day of Forced Removal

King tried to leave with the Mojis and jumped into the back of the truck. When soldiers tried to get him out of the truck he bared his teeth at them. Eventually the Mojis coaxed him out of the truck and he was left with the neighbors. With his family away, King refused to eat and died of starvation.
