North Carolina Animal Shelter Mistakenly Euthanizes the Dog

PITT COUNTY, N.C. – North Carolina animal shelter apologizes for accidentally euthanizing a 2-year-old dog.

Pitt County Animal Services said the process was executed on Feb. 2 after the dog was placed on a 10-day bite quarantine.

“Through human error, the owner’s desire for the dog to be returned was incorrectly entered into the computer system,” the shelter posted on Facebook.

The shelter offered its regrets and heartfelt apologies. In addition, the shelter said procedural changes are underway to prevent similar mistakes.

Despite the shelter’s contrition, people have expressed outrage on its Facebook page.

“This is absurd and completely unacceptable,” one user posted. “There must be steep repercussions for all involved in this grave & tragic incident!!!”

According to the News & Observer, the dog belonged to Destiny Daniels, who took her pet, Kaos, to the shelter after biting someone.

Daniels posted her frustration on Facebook.

“They got my dog’s paperwork wrong,” she posted.

According to the news outlet, Daniels posted on TikTok that she buried her dog in her grandmother’s yard.
