Is that the story Tooker told you? And you fell for it?
He didn't take the dog to the vet, or the family would have been called. Lucy had TWO phone numbers on her ID tag, so why didn't he call them? He NEVER called them, because, like you said, he panicked. He was worried about the fines he's going to have to pay, having his dogs taken away from him, and being sued. His concern was NOT for Lucy; it was for himself.
This horrible situation was caused by Mr. Tooker's negligence. He knew the dogs were dangerous because of previous offenses. He knew they were unpredictable. But the fact that he was negligent doesn't bother people half as much as the fact that he let Lucy lay in his car for 4 hours to die a long and painful death. She suffered, and now her family is suffering. Mr. Tooker needs to man up and take responsibility for that. And you need to take off your blinders and see him for the piece of crap that he is.
