An investigation is underway after a “freak accident” killed multiple dogs at a training facility in Virginia Beach. As reported by ABC 13 News, Portsmouth Animal Control is investigating the deadly incident that happened at Virginia Beach Dog Training earlier this week.
The training facility made a Facebook post about the “accident” on Thursday, writing:
Last weekend we had a freak accident that resulted in the loss of both members of our personal pack as well as several of our clients dogs. We are devastated by the loss and have tried to show compassion and respect for the wishes of the parents of those that were lost. We have been in direct, timely contact with each person affected by the accident and have been transparent with the events surrounding the accident. Once the immediate crisis was handled, we investigated the cause, found, and corrected the equipment failure, as well as are continuing to put measures in place to prevent any chances this situation could happen again.
We have been in contact with animal control and have cooperated fully with their investigation.
Words cannot begin to express our sadness we feel as a team and we understand the outrage and concern. We appreciate the support from our clients who have reached out during this terrible time to offer their condolences and continued support.
Though the details of the accident are not revealed in the business’ post, another social media post, by the owner of one of the dogs who died, reveals that it was an HVAC failure that resulted in the death of several dogs.
No further details have been provided at this time.
