KY: Follow Ups on Bugsy and Copper
August 31, 2010
I recently mentioned this story: Williamsburg, KY residents wanted to help a friendly dog who was roaming. They called animal control thinking the dog, called Bugsy, would be rescued, given a bath, cared for and adopted out. Instead AC responded to the call and shot the dog to death.
Follow up: On Monday of last week, the county announced the animal control officer who killed Bugsy instead of helping him will be disciplined. (No specifics were reported.)
On Friday, some local residents protested the heartless killing:
People showed up at the Whitley County Courthouse in Williamsburg Friday morning, walking around with signs and demanding change, following the incident.
People at Friday’s rally say they hope Whitley Judge-Executive Pat White will hear their message, and appoint a new animal control officer.
