I can't even express what I feel for this poor furbaby. I would be so devastated if this was one of my pups.

Wow, this broke my heart!!! :( I could not imagine if this was my baby girl, she is like my 3rd child!!
I know it was not intentional, however he forgot and now she's dead. That's a horrible HORRIBLE death!! Trapped in a kennel outside in the heat w/ out food or water for 4 days!! Wow, I really dk what else to say!

How does one forget about there animal??? I'm not meaning that in a mean way just sayin

It was the animal control officer who forgot about the animal, not the owner. Her dog ran off and got picked up by animal control and HE FORGOT THE ANIMAL IN AN OUTSIDE KENNEL. I know people forget things, but what if a doctor was to forget about a patient in some way...I'd want them to be in severe trouble also.

The article said that the particular district in which this happened has had complaints and problems with Animal Control for a while, so it sounds to me like the whole system failed them.

There should have been a database for any animals picked up, as well as a checklist that should have been followed as protocol (just like there are in hospitals). Sounds like just a sloppy job all around, with no proper follow-up by those in charge. Sad and unfortunate all around. That poor creature surely suffered before he passed...

What really made me angry was that when he realized what he had done he took the dog to the landfill to dispose of her body. I know he says he forgot about the dog but his actions following the incident were intentional! If it was so accidental he should have told his superiors immediately, not tried to cover it up!

Agreed. And I scoffed at the "apology letter", too. You were responsible for killing the woman's dog, but you write a letter saying how sorry you are? How about you man up and admit to her face that you're a sorry human being--or did you "forget" that, too?

There ought to be some sort of criminal charges. Animal Control are normally the ones who arrest people for doing things like this, so I think he got off easy just being fired.

Tee C you are right! They are SUPPOSED to be the ones who arrest people who harm animals. They are supposed to be the one who protect the animals. Imagine my shock after reading this blog by Nathan Winograd. Needless to say I was shocked and had a hard time believing it until I started to read some more about animal shelters accross the country where this behavior is the norm! His blog is not easy to read, but I think it is necessary to read for everyone who is an animal lover!
