On June 20, 2024, the West Union Police Department filed a complaint against Pennsboro Police chief TRAVIS RAY SNUFFER (pictured via WBOY) accusing him of leaving his K9 Officer Judge in a hot car.


According to the complaint, SNUFFER “actually left his police K9 (Judge) in the backseat of his 2009 Dodge Charger police cruiser,” reported WBOY.


The news outlet further reported, “The complaint noted that the vehicle was ‘inoperableand that ‘all windows were open and no air conditioning was available’ and that the outside temperature ‘was between 85 and 90 degrees with hot sun shining over the vehicle’.”


Reportedly, while K9 Officer Judge was locked up in the hot vehicle, SNUFFER had left his West Union residence and went to Clarksburg.


SNUFFER was arrested on June 21, 2024, and charged with cruelty to animals.

On June 22, 2024, he pleaded not guilty. Two days later, he posted a $6,000 bond.


As reported by WBOY, SNUFFER’s significant other told them that K9 Officer Judge and SNUFFER’s previous K9, 13-year-old Officer Dexter, were taken and are safe.

This is happening way too often! I do not understand how anyone but especially an officer forget his partner in a vehicle?! I pray K9 Judge will never suffer through such circumstances ever again. They deserve so much better.
