Police officer to face prosecution over dog deaths

I first blogged about this back on the 2nd July when the story broke and then again, here, on the 3rd July.

Now, according to the BBC website the Police Officer responsible is to face prosecution.

A police spokesperson said: "Following a review of the circumstances into the deaths of two police dogs, Nottinghamshire Police has taken the decision to suspend the police officer involved.

The Met Office said it reached 28.1C (82.5F) in Nottingham on 30 June.

The RSPCA has said the force reported the incident to them on the day it happened and had co-operated with the charity in the investigation.

Anyone convicted of causing unnecessary suffering to an animal could face up to six months in prison and a £20,000 fine.

I still, a month later am so angry about this, and really do hope that the Nottinghamshire Police Force hold its nerve and go all the way with this prosecution.

It won't be the Police who decide, though - it'll be the CPS. I hope that justice is done because there is no excuse at all for this appalling cruelty.
