MCCRACKEN COUNTY, KY (WAVE) - The heat stroke deaths of five dogs at a western Kentucky animal shelter will not lead to criminal charges.
The McCracken County Attorney reviewed the police investigation and found no proof the dogs died from intentional acts. In addition, there is no way to determine whether mechanical failure or power loss made the facility's air-conditioning stop working.
The dogs were found dead by an employee arriving at work in June. The dogs were being kept in an outbuilding because the shelter was overcrowded.
