Police Officer Convicted Of Animal Cruelty

A sad day for Pc Mark Johnson who was convicted on animal cruelty when his two German Shepherds died from heatstroke from being left in his truck. The initial report said that the two dogs probably died within twenty minutes from the heat.

We read about this all the time of people just leaving their pets in the car while they run in to do something not thinking about their pet suffering from heatstroke.

The Nottingham Magistrates' Court District Judge said: It was sad and regrettable that the two dogs had died. This has been an extremely difficult case, not only for Pc Johnson and his family but it's also been difficult for me up here.

This just goes to show you that we are all responsible for our actions especially when it comes to protecting our pets.
