Investigation underway in SC concerning dogs shot and dumped in landfill

The Chesterfield County sheriff’s office is investigating allegations that shelter employees shot nearly two dozen dogs and dumped them in a nearby landfill.

WECT.com reports a shelter volunteer, acting on a tip, went to the landfill and discovered two of the dogs with apparent gunshot wounds to the head.

The shelter has been temporarily shut down and the employees placed on administrative leave during the investigation, and the animals are being cared for by patrol officers.

From the story – “” (Chesterfield County sheriff Sam) Parker asked for the State Law Enforcement Division (SLED) to assist in the investigation however due to a state law that says shooting of animals could be used as a form of euthanasia SLED won’t step in until there is proof of criminal activity. “”

There’s a state law that needs to be revised right away. Shooting should not be considered an accepted form of euthanasia. We don’t even do that mass murderers anymore. Why should we allow it to happen to innocent animals?
