Perry County police dog left in patrol car overnight, dies

(WDAM)   The Perry County Sheriff’s Office must replace a police dog after one of its canine officers was found dead in its handler’s car.

Napo, 3, a Belgian Malinois breed of dog, was discovered dead in the back of a patrol car after being left in the car overnight.

Sheriff Jimmy Dale Smith says the cause of death is unknown, but the dog could have died of a heart attack or of heat exhaustion.

Smith says the handler has been re-assigned.

Napo was with the department for about a year-and-a-half and was purchased with donations from area businesses. The cost has not been disclosed, but similar dogs cost in the range of $5-$10,000.

The incident happened three weeks ago, but a tip from a viewer helped bring the story to light Thursday.

The dog can be seen on the Perry County Sheriff’s Facebook Page here:https://www.facebook.com/pages/Perry-County-Sheriffs-Department/197251873630610?fref=ts

  • who ever is responsible for MANSLAUGHTER. they PRETEND a dog is a COP when a "criminal" reacts to biting with resistance as assault. then this is MANSLAUGHTER.
    the persons guilty of this should be charged, fired, and not allowed back.
