Police in Enfield, Connecticut will continue to investigate how a caged German shepherd was abandoned over an embankment on State Street last month. On Monday, the shepherd was euthanized.
According to the Enfield Police, the dog had been taken to a veterinarian who assessed the dog as overly aggressive and “beyond the tolerance level that was considered acceptable for a potential adoption. As per state law, if a veterinarian determines a dog is injured, diseased or not likely to recover, the dog is to be euthanized.
The German shepherd was found on September 14 and at the time was dehydrated. The original post from the police stated:
“We need your help Enfield!
Earlier today this male German Shepherd 🐕 was found in this crate down an embankment. The dog appears to be healthy and was wearing a blue collar with a black clasp,” the Enfield Police posted on their Facebook on September 14 when the caged dog was discovered.
“Most of us are animal lovers and though they’ll never admit it, sick and injured animal calls are among the most difficult calls that we go on. This was a professional decision made on the responsibility not only to our community but to the animal, who based on his behavior had led a difficult life at the hands of someone who clearly does not share our love of animals.”
