There was a similar case closer to home, in Nottinghamshire, two years ago, and the police officer responsible was convicted of cruelty to animals. I believe he claimed he was suffering from depression.
How on earth can anyone forget they have left their dogs in a car when it is 30°C outside? Let alone such valuable animals as police dogs, trained at the taxpayer’s expense. And especially when the person responsible is a dog trainer, who should know more than most people about how to look after a beautiful and valuable dog.
You wouldn’t leave your baby or grandmother trapped in a hot car to die so how could anyone do this to a dog?
The animals suffer a horrible death. They are distressed, terrified and in terrible pain as their organs shut down. I only wish the officer whose fault it was that they died could suffer half as much but I just know he won’t and that it will happen again, and again.
