A teacher at an Oregon middle school has been cited for animal neglect after his rescued dog died in the parking lot of Stoller Middle School in Beaverton. The dog, a Labrador retriever/border collie mix, died on Wednesday after he jumped out of John Wickham’s truck; the leash that the dog was tethered with was too short and the dog was strangled to death.

According to KOIN News, a witness stated that before the dog jumped, she saw him, “barking and acting frantic.” It was a hot day, in the 80s, when the dog apparently became desperate enough to jump out of the truck.

According to the police report, Wickham made a rather callous remark to witnesses after coming out to pick up his deceased dog and put him back in the bed of the truck – he is reported to have stated, “these things happen.”

Wickham was cited, but not arrested. The authorities want to remind people to call 9-1-1 if they observe an animal in distress, noting that this situation was “completely avoidable.”

    Disgusting man and this is who is teaching to children. No remorse of any kind shown. Some type of charges should be made against him. He should never own another animal.

    “These things happen”? Hopefully not to you again John Wickham! The dog should never have been left in the truck in the heat in the first place and then allowed to hang himself! You POS!

    I hope the rescue that gave this wretched soul to this bastard black lists him – EVERYWHERE!

    “One witness told the deputy she had seen the dog barking and acting frantic before he jumped out. She said the dog was struggling with its legs barely touching the ground and went into Jacob Wismer Elementary across the street to tell someone. Two women then went back to the truck and found the dog already dead.”

    WFT – you SAW this poor soul struggling… unable to touch the ground… AND YOU LEFT TO “TELL SOMEONE”… LEFT HIM TO DIE???

    Why the HELL did you NOT rush to save him????

    Rest-in-peace, precious boy: You deserved SO much more – from owner to witnesses…

    Is there no more common sense or compassion in this world? I hope God is keeping track of all the crap that is going on. This man should be fired and charges brought against him and the “witness.” She’s as much to blame as the owner.

    This is a teacher???? WOW! His total unconcern for his dog is a prime example of his level of humanity – his brains are located where the sun don’t shine – John Wickham SHOULD be charged with animal neglect – but NO-O-O – authorities once again close their eyes to animal cruelty. Just imagine how this skank is treating the kids he is ‘supposedly’ in charge of – watch out parents – this is what is teaching your kids – UGH!
