Gazette Premium Content Owner of dog left in Denver street doesn't buy police explanation

Denver Post Published: April 13, 2014

The owner of a dog hit by a car in Denver, which died 90 minutes later as police stood by, wants at least an apology from police.

Dani Juras said her 14-year-old black Lab mix, Harley, escaped out a door that her kids accidently left open Wednesday night.

Juras posted fliers of Harley throughout her neighborhood and on animal websites before she saw the video on 7News.

The video shows the dog gasping in the street as police prevented a neighbor from helping it. Police called Animal Control 15 minutes after arriving to the scene, but it took the on-call Animal Control officer more than an hour to arrive because he came from his home.
