500 BLOCK KILKENNY CIRCLE: Someone reported a chocolate Labrador retriever sitting outside of a home barking during the middle of Tuesday night's thunderstorm. When officers arrived, they found the dog tied-up to a deck post wet, cold, muddy and tethered without food and water. Officers were unable to contact the owner so they took the dog into protective custody. The dog’s owner later called police and said they tied the dog up so they can go to a softball game. Animal Control will meet with the owner, Police Lt. Brent Wasson said.
