The State Law Enforcement Division is investigating the shooting deaths of six dogs because South Carolina’s attorney general doesn’t think Chesterfield County’s internal investigation went far enough.
The dogs were found almost a month ago in a landfill where euthanized animals are dumped. They had been shot in the head.
Soooooo, SLED hadn’t already been investigating the case? Geez, this is getting embarrassing (er).
SLED agents must conduct official interviews with four animal control officers, asking if they participated or directed anyone to participate in the unlawful shooting of dogs.
The agents will also look into reports of dog-fighting-related activities at the shelter.
What if the ACOs say they know nothing about shooting dogs or dogfighting? Will that wrap up the case? What about the Schedule III drugs that remain unaccounted for at the shelter (run by a convicted drug felon) – will SLED be asking yay or nay on that?
