MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

A Memphis Animal Services administrator was suspended for five days after workers accidentally euthanized a dog.

According to a City of Memphis document, 12 animals were selected to be photographed for a magazine promoting adoption.

Workers mistakenly euthanized one of those animals.

The document said Administrator James Rogers and his staff did not make a substantial effort to tell other employees that the dogs were on hold for the photo shoot.

In an official report, City of Memphis officials said the incident not only resulted in the loss of an animal's life, but also aggravated public opinion of Memphis Animal Services.
