VAN WERT, Ohio (21Alive) -- "If they'd taken better care of their dogs, they wouldn't have ended up here in the first place."

That's a quote from the Van Wert County dog warden who's on paid suspension as the sheriff investigates him for dereliction of duty.

Rich Strunkenberg didn't want to be interviewed on camera, but did say the situation wasn't that bad and that it's been "blown way out of proportion."
