Ferndale Police Officers Caught in Middle of Night Prank Involving Stray Dogpetsitting

(Crystal A. Proxmire, Sept. 12, 2014)

“It’s infantile. It’s grade school-ish, middle school-ish at best,” that’s what Ferndale Police Lt. William Wilson told Hank Winchester of WDIV News in response to a prank played by officers involving a stray dog that had been turned in to the station.

Wilson said that a stray dog had been turned into the police station, and that a dispatcher had expressed MBREW draft oneinterest in keeping it. Instead of turning the dog over to animal control, they kept it at the station. Then when the dispatcher changed his mind, an on duty officer, another officer and a Lieutenant decided to take the dog to the dispatcher’s girlfriend’s house in the middle of the night and tie it to the door.

But instead they picked the wrong house, and the person inside thought someone was trying to break in so they called the Southfield Police.

“They had no business pulling a prank like this, taking resources out of the City of Ferndale, one officer a car, to go into another city to waste time to pull a prank like this,” Lt. Wilson said.

He told WDIV that the incident is being investigated and the officers will be disciplined. The dog is safe and in custody of Southfield Animal Control.  If anyone has information about the dog, they can call Southfield Animal Control at (248) 796-5410.
