A public works supervisor in Jourdanton, Texas reportedly ordered six stray dogs drowned in the sewer plant instead of being properly euthanised. The dogs were taken to the sewer plant and dropped into the water. Why did they do it? Because the veterinarian, who usually administers lethal injections to stray animals, was on vacation. How did the city council find out? A child saw the act and told his mother, who made a complaint. The supervisor has now been reprimanded and asked to attend classes with animal control officers.
That one child had more sense than the man who ordered the act, and all those who did it.
