    Dog survives euthanization

    PERTH AMBOY, N.J. - The animal control officer accused in the botched euthanization of a dog that survived a garbage truck ride to a landfill has been suspended and charged with animal cruelty.

    Michael Iovine, an animal cruelty investigator with the Middlesex County SPCA, said William Paul apparently has not properly followed euthanasia procedures for years. The organization on Friday charged Paul, 45, an animal control officer in Perth Amboy for 18 years, with criminal and civil charges of torturing and inflicting cruelty on a living creature

    "It's evident that he didn't use sufficient drugs to put the animal down, and it's evident that he did not properly listen for a heartbeat in a quiet environment,"

    Paul, believing he had killed the dog, dumped it in garbage at the city trash transfer station, where it was compacted with other trash on a garbage truck. As it was being dumped at the county landfill in East Brunswick the next day, the dog poked its head out at the truck's rear just before it would have fallen into the landfill
