State: Honey died needlessly

An investigator from the Georgia Dept. of Agriculture has confirmed the City of Barnesville violated it own ordinance and needlessly euthanized a dog just hours after it was picked up and taken to the local animal shelter. Inspector Mark Murrah visited the local pound one week after Honey and all the other dogs in the pound were put down due to a positive test for Parvovirus among a litter of puppies adopted there. Murrah’s report, acquired by The Herald-Gazette after an open records request, states city supervisor Jason Shirey ordered the gassing of all the dogs in the pound after the report of Parvo came in. Murrah noted, however, the kennels in the shelter are laid out in a manner in which one or more could have been used to isolate possibly infected dogs without the wholesale gassing of the animals there.
