Cop Dumps Retired K-9 at Animal Shelter, Is Demoted to Patrol Duty
The Police Department in Jackson, Miss., says its K-9 dogs are like "family"—so it was less than thrilled to discover that a retired police dog had been left at an animal shelter by his handler, who was meant to be looking after it. The department says officer Carl Ellis was demoted to patrol duty after they discovered that the retired dog, Ringo, had been surrendered to an animal shelter, the Jackson Clarion-Ledger reports.
