SBI finds no crime committed in Bryson City K9 death Story Link
www.smokymountainnews.com wrote:According to the police department, the 2-year-old Dutch shepherd died at the home of his assigned handler on March 13, 2018, after allegedly choking on a piece of plastic he tore off of his doghouse. (Carol) Skaziak - Throw Away Dogs Project - said she didn’t think she was getting the full story.
I can't reproduce the whole article, but I recommend reading it. It's a tragic situation all the way around.

From the report it sounds like the original police agency handler decided he didn't want the dog, and they put the dog in the care of a new recruit still undergoing basic LEO certification despite a contract requiring them to surrender the dog back to Throw Away Dogs. The police had the dog cremated dog before a requested necropsy could be performed.

Things that make you go hmmm?

You can see these dogs are not meant to be bulky. The department doesn’t care about the weight of the dogs.
