Animal Care Services investigators determined that the dead dogs in a photo posted to facebook by a 16-year-old were not killed by the teen. The photo went viral on the web, causing animal lovers nationwide to respond. Authorities determined the dogs were killed by a car not the teenager. Animal Care Services also responded to the investigation on facebook with the following comment, "You may have seen recent media reports here in
San Antonio about two dogs reportedly killed by a teenager who then
posted pictures of the pets on Facebook. We know there has been a lot of
concern surrounding these pictures and wanted to provide this quick
update. Animal Care Services has been
working with the San Antonio Police Department to investigate this
alleged cruelty case since being notified of the pictures several days
ago. It has been determined the dogs in question were actually hit by a
passing car while roaming in the street and were not killed by the teen
who posted the pictures of their remains. While we disagree with the
posting of the pictures and the tenor of the attached comments, there is
no evidence to support further investigation into animal cruelty."

Texas district that axed sports may get new life
May 21, 2013 15:00 GMT
KINGSVILLE, Texas (AP) -- A South Texas school district that shut down its sports programs amid years of academic struggles may be allowed to stay open.
A news conference is scheduled Tuesday to announce a partnership between the Premont (PREE'-mahnt) Independent School District and Texas A&M University System. Michael Williams, the state's education chief, will attend the event in Kingsville.
The Texas Education Agency had threatened since 2011 to close the district if it didn't upgrade its facilities and improve academic performance. Since then Premont has axed its sports programs to allow students to concentrate on school, built two science labs and underwent audits.
Superintendent Ernest Singleton has said his March conversations with state education leaders left him hopeful the district would survive.
