Dog handler guilty of cruelty

LONDON – A POLICE dog handler who left his two German Shepherds to bake to death in his car last year when he became distracted by paperwork was found guilty on Monday of animal cruelty.

Police constable Mark Johnson, 39, who denied the charge, said he was suffering from depression and obsessive compulsive disorder leading him to forget his dogs, 18-month-old Jay-Jay and Jet, 7, for 7 hours on one of the hottest days of the year.
