"A Wyoming police officer has pleaded not guilty to an animal-cruelty charge that alleges a police dog died after he left it in a hot patrol car for several hours."
Now wait a minute. I thought that if a suspect kills a police dog they get charged with the murder of a police officer.
Why was this officer only charged with animal cruelty? He killed a fellow police officer.
They're probably trying to show more compassion for the person cop than he did for his four legged partner.
Do drug sniffing dogs sniff rear ends too?
"...According to an investigator's statement filed in Natrona County Circuit Court, Mills police officer Zachary Miller left the dog, a 10-year-old female black lab named Nyx, in his patrol car for over six hours July 9.....
The car was running, but the air conditioning was off and outside temperatures reached 86 degrees........"
So apparently the dog was left in the patrol car with the engine running for six hours? Seems there is more neglect here than meets the eye.
Don't know why someone would leave the engine running and not run the A/C to keep the dog cool. Maybe he thought he had the air on, who knows?
This person was training other people too, so weird.
