PENSACOLA, Fla. (AP) — Employees of a Panhandle Animal shelter say a woman's dog was mistakenly euthanized because of improper paperwork.
The Pensacola News Journal (http://on.pnj.com/1dYga5R ) reportes Cowgirl, a Labrador retriever mix, was euthanized Aug. 30 even though its owner had been in contact with the shelter for several days.
A report by the Escambia County Human Resources Department says that an employee noted the owner's name and contact information on an identification card. But there wasn't a note on the front of the card that additional information was located on the back.
The report included recommendations on how the shelter might avoid such mistakes in the future.
