“I tried to get some other of my other employees to come back to see if they heard what I heard,” said kennel worker Kenneth Weathersbee. “You didn’t believe it yourself?” we asked.

“When I heard him barking, [I] turned around and looked to see if somebody was behind me I walked back to see him barking it out,” said Weathersbee.
