I attended the Comets hockey game tonight, and parked in the open parking lot next to the police station.
Arriving at 6:15, I noticed the police K-9 car parked behind the building.
The police dog was alone in the car. The car was running, and the windows were 1/2 down.
Remember how cold it is out there! As people walked by to get to the auditorium, the dog was clearly agitated, and barking at everyone that passed by.
I felt very bad for the dog, but assumed the officer was inside, and would be back shortly.
Much to my surprise (or maybe not), the K-9 officer was inside the aud.(and warm I'm sure).
For the ENTIRE length of the game, 3 hours, this dog was left in the car, parked behind the building, windows down, engine running.... barking and barking.
While his "Partner" watched the game.
How do I know? Because between periods I checked.... and after the game as I went to my car... he was still there, barking away!
What a SHAME that this dog was left alone like that for the length of the game! This is not tolerated with average "citizens", and should not be tolerated by a police k-9 handler.
I can not imagine that this would be good for a police dogs mental disposition, and would undoubtedly cause great stress to this dog.
Shame on you for thinking you are above putting the responsibility and care of this dog first.
I am sure there are plenty of police officers in the UPD who would LOVE the be partnered with a K-9. Maybe you should hand over the leash!

This needs to be reported- animal control? Just because they are "police" doesnt mean they know how to care for animals..... this highly upsets me. I

Poor doggy. He was left in a warm heated car for 2 hours with water. Awwww. Boo hoo what about the poor deer and coy dogs left outside in nature tonight. Forget the warm police dog with water in his car. This post makes no sense. You said the car was running so obviously the heat was on. Dogs eat dog crap and now you except a reaction from topix ? Nice try
You moron

They have to leave the dogs in the car dumba**. Hence the reason the vehicle is left running so the heater is working. Windows r left open purposely so the dog doesn't over heat and also has fresh air and oh just incase this genius is wondering....there r also food n water bowls in the back and it is a police K9 they r trained to bark n show aggression at anyone who is not their handler. You sir or ma'am are the definition of a moron!

Well I'm glad to know that some people feel it is Ok to leave an animal for 3 hours in a running vehicle while they watch the hockey game (hey if your in uniform and working, this must make it ok)
Hey, the dogs got food and water... why not just leave hom there your entire shift? And hell, he's a police dog, when you bring him home at night... leave the car running in the driveway and refill his food dish.
He's trained to deal with it! Really...???
Its one matter if your working an active situation and you don't have a choice. Another matter all together in my opinion if your watching a hockey game.
Get in your car, patrol the streets, and God forbid... dont you dare show that dog any kinda of companionship. That would just ruin him right!!

Worry about people in utica leaving their kids alone for 2 hours before you worry about a dog. I bet there were 100 dogs in utica wishing they were that police dog last night. Sh&&&t there were probably 100 people that wish they were that dog.

And without a doubt.... the same WOULD be felt for children or stray animals left out in the elements. Its called compassion. Dictionary.com . Seems like you could use a little help with that word.

Thats right Jerry!
But NOW we know that it MUST be ok..... just leave some dog food and water in the back.... and enough gas to keep them warm! Go do what you want. Its ok. Only a dog.
And dont worry about how aggitate he might get with crowds of people walking by. Hell, he was trained to get aggitated!
I have no doubt there are plenty of good K9 handlers.
Maybe this officer just needs a refresher.

Gotta love these bleeding heart liberal unrealistic goons of Utica. Making statements about things they neither know the policy or protocol, assuming someone is just watching a game while they were probably working the game. Hey next time go into the station and make your dumb complaint and see what the officers have to say about before you just make ur stupid statements.......go join the peace core and pretend save the world jerk off.
