I am still searching and coming up empty on any articles....Hell, I'm coming up empty finding this thing on the radar period! I don't even see locals on topix and fb talking about it. I've searched keywords and read semi-moronic conversations about nothingness looking for a single blip about this until I am sick of doing so. Very nice job they have done trying to make this go away (so it seems).
I suppose it is just one of those "things that happens" in their eyes......perhaps the locals don't care enough to make a fuss?
The county I live in is connected to Buchanan county so I am not "a local" but this story is close enough to home (literally a few minutes drive and I am very familiar with the area...have spent significant amounts of time there) for me to make some noise about it. If this situation was the other way around....well, I think enough stories come across the eyes of ATS members for me not to have to explain what I am getting at. (I am sure I am not the only one that sees the issue here)
I have also considered direct contact with the sheriff's department. For now I prefer to stay off their "radar".....until more information can be gleaned anyways. This is a small place and the "good ole boy"...."taking care of their own" system of things are how things operate for the most part. Poor education and poverty, drug problems and the war waged against those who use drugs, coupled with the corruption (both instances of factual occurrence and corruption gossiped about by locals...corruption that equals fear to many...fear equals don't "buck the system" because they will frame you) inside aforementioned organization keeps the mouth's of many shut in this area, if one catches my drift. I'd rather get my facts COMPLETELY straight before I stick my neck out any distance. Around here it isn't so hard to catch a bs charge of some type....that is, if the PD boys want you to. Not much you can do when on a back road in the middle of nowhere land alone with deputy corruption. Those that claim a variety of things "they would do" have no clue what they are talking about or have never "been there done that".....the few that have and walked away, I commend you, you are few and far between. That is, at least in my neck of the woods.
(Checked the thread before posting this in case it was going anywhere....didn't want to derail my own thread. Guess not.....establishment of direct contact with this department is looking more and more like the only possible way I am going to get anything beside this one article from a local paper)
the officer in charge of the k9 needs to be named, shamed and blamed. You don't leave a loaded weapon around or a powerful animal trained to attack. Someone is responsible.

Simply a bad handler, this is pretty much par for the course though.
K9's should not be "cops".
Just another form of slavery, and after we humans are done sometimes these 4 legged friends are put down.
Either because of financial reasons or the dogs are too violent at that point.
Shame on us and those who exploit.
Any one of my dogs is better than a match for any 2 legged unarmed prey but my saying goes, "doggies don't fight".
And this is what the coward cops do with what should be their bestest buddies, throw them at harm.
I would never allow my dogs to be put in any kind of danger as they are my best buddies and are definitely family members.
