    Angry Dumbass Vet Employee Leaves Louisiana Tech Bulldog Mascot Outside in 100-Degree Heat!

    Louisiana Tech mascot, Tech XX, dies after vet employee leaves him in 100-degree heat

    By Graham Watson











    RIP Tech XX

    Three days after Sexton Animal Health Center put out an APB for Louisiana Tech's English bulldog mascot, Tech XX, the center and university issued a statement that the 4-year-old bulldog had died thanks to negligence by a now-former employee.
    According to Dr. Patrick Sexton, who has cared for the dog since 2008, an employee let the dog out to relieve himself and failed to let him back in. By the time the employee remembered to check on Tech XX, the dog had died of heat stroke.
    The temperature in Ruston, La., on Sunday reached a high of 102 degrees.
    The Louisiana Tech athletic department spoke to the incident on its Facebook page.

    Early Wednesday afternoon, Louisiana Tech University learned of the passing of Tech XX through the following communication from Dr. Patrick Sexton.
    Regretfully, I learned this morning that through negligence of an employee, Tech XX was left outside too long on Sunday evening and passed away from a heat stroke. That employee unfortunately chose to handle it the wrong way and attempted to cover it up. Due to this negligence, the employee is no longer employed by Sexton Animal Health Center.
    My family, my staff and I are extremely upset at this tragic turn of events as I know the entire Louisiana Tech Family is as well. Tech XX was a member of our immediate family and a daily part of our lives for the past four years. We are devastated over the circumstances of his passing and there will be a large void in our hearts for some time to come. As with any family member, we will spend considerable time grieving his passing.
    Patrick R. Sexton, DVM
    According to bulldogsworld.com, Bulldogs are especially susceptible to heat stroke - even in 75-80-degree weather - because of their shorter breathing systems.

    I'm scared to even think what that might mean.

    RIP, Tech XX.

    Personally, I wouldn't mind if the person got fired and arrested for cruelty to animals. No person should do this to an animal. It breaks my heart.

    In 37.7 degrees celcius, no breed of doggie should be left outside without shade and fresh water. I would like to know what this idiot was doing that was so important he/she couldn't stand there for two minutes while the dog did it's business.

    ^ the employee was probably working on other things and got distracted. I could see how this could happen. I have kids and a dog and I will send him out for a potty break and I will forget if I let him back in. We have to actually shut the door and walk away or else he will just sit at the door waiting and not go pee. Sometimes he's just quiet in his bed so it's hard to keep track of him. Our area has been around 100 degrees lately, but I don't worry about him because we have shade and water. My kids are out in the heat too, but not long periods. I didn't realize bulldogs couldn't handle heat though, that's sad, little guy was cute. The employee should have just admitted it, people make mistakes.

    Exactly! I mean, this is equivalent to a bank employee losing someone's deposit or a car dealer losing a car off the lot. It's your JOB! And yes, distractions happen. Perhaps, there was a medical emergency occurring inside the vet's office with another animal that caused this employee to forget momentarily about the bulldog, but the fact that he/she tried to cover it up just pisses me off.

    Bulldogs can't handle anything. They are manmade freaks and should not exist. But if people keep making these brachycephalic monstrosities, then they should at least care for them properly.
