A shepherd mix named Target, claimed to be a ‘hero’ was euthanized by mistake in a Arizona shelter. He alterted soldiers to a suicide bomber who infiltrated the U.S. compound in Afghanistan. He got loose from his owners on a Friday and by the end of the weekend the country shelter put him down. The employee who did so has been placed on administrative leave as the Control Dictator says there are clear-cut procedures to follow which had not been conducted.
