MARTIN COUNTY, N.C. — An animal control director in North Carolina who was fired after not properly euthanizing a cat now faces a charge of animal cruelty involving a dog.
WITN reported that Pete Brock is no longer a county employee in Martin County after being fired last month for “grossly inefficient job performance.”
Brock was fired after a cat he was trying to euthanize was found alive in a freezer the next day, according to the station.
On Friday, Brock turned himself in on a charge of felony cruelty to animals. That charge involves a dog he authorized to be put down. He allegedly shot the dog multiple times with darts containing euthanasia solution.
