Police Dog Tortured and Murdered
A German Shepherd dog owned by the Royal Bahamas Police Force died from heat stress on Monday after being found in the back of a van.
In view of the incident, animal rights activists are calling for a full investigation into the matter.
Jim Crosby, a canine aggression expert at the Bahamas Humane Society, said the dog was brought “into the clinic near death” after being found in a van where it is believed he stayed for more than a day.
When the dog’s temperature was recorded 35 minutes later, his temperature was 110 degrees.
The normal temperature for dogs is between 101 to 102 degrees, Mr Crosby said, adding: “His temperature was enough to basically fry him. It causes brain failure and organ failure. He obviously died from heat stress. There were no injuries and his death could’ve been completely preventable.”
Mr Crosby said Police Force officials know who is responsible for the dog’s death and that person could have performed criminal negligence.corruption, incompetence, pigs, police
