Default One K-9 that will not get to retire

http://www.witn.com/home/headlines/S...274615111.html

A highly trained police dog has died after authorities say his handler left him inside a patrol vehicle overnight.
Duplin County Sheriff Blake Wallace confirms that Deputy Kevin Williams has been reassigned to a courthouse bailiff after the death of "Kela" last month.
Wallace says "Kela" was a Belgium Malinois and had been trained to track down people and narcotics.
The sheriff says Williams was on duty when he received a call that his child was sick and needed to be picked up from school. Wallace says once arriving home, the deputy took his child inside and then went back out to feed the dog. The sheriff says Williams forgot to take "Kela" out of the cruiser and the dog was found dead the next morning.
Terrible situation.

Not sure how a canine officer could forget his partner? In any regard, a very sad situation.

We had the same thing happen here in Chandler last year. The outrage and outcry against the officer was unbelievable. No winners in that situation, very sad.

Isn't in a felony to kill a K9 officer? If so, why does it not apply here?

No doubt this is a sad story. I have no reason to believe the officer intended to harm his partner but so what? If I mistakenly kill a K9, my ass would be charged.

Think your already know the answer. Does not apply to their own.
Just everyone else.
Sad fact of life.

Just my quick observations.....
There was no intent.
K9 officers get out of their vehicles 100's of times and do not take the dog out, dog stays in the running car.

Overnight? Come on! This wasn't a officer at a scene or responding to a call and the dog wasn't needed and left in a running car. This was a officer off duty who left his partner locked in a vehicle overnight.

K9s considered an officer. Cop should be charged.

"Wallace says once arriving home, the deputy took his child inside and then went back out to feed the dog. The sheriff says Williams forgot to take "Kela" out of the cruiser and the dog was found dead the next morning."

When at home, does one normally feed their K9 partner in the car?

It seems unusual that a K-9 can be an "officer" if it's trained, or just a dead dog if it lunges at a cop. I'm not debating anything specific.Just seems odd to me that dogs can be both.

I was thinking he planned on returning to work when I read that part.

I agree. I've always thought if a dog could be a K9 "officer" then they can be a legal family member.
