K-9 left in squad car dies
KEANASVILLE, N.C. – A highly-trained K-9 died after being left in a hot cruiser overnight in North Carolina.
The Duplin County Sheriff’s Department said last month Deputy Kevin Williams received a call about this his sick child at school and needed to leave work right away.
When he arrived home, he fed the dog, but forgot to take “Kela” out of the cruiser, officials said. The police dog was found dead the next morning, WGHP reported.
Kela, a Belgian Shepherd, was trained to track down people and narcotics.
The District Attorney’s Office did not bring charges against Williams citing there was no criminal intent, according to the sheriff’s department. Williams has been reassigned to courthouse baliff.
