PADUCAH, Ky. (AP) -- A prosecutor says no criminal charges are warranted in the deaths of five dogs that died of heat stroke at a western Kentucky animal shelter.

The animals were found dead in June by an employee at the McCracken County animal shelter upon arriving at the facility.

The Paducah Sun reports that Graves County Attorney John Cunningham reviewed the police investigation before issuing his finding. He said there is no proof that the dogs died from intentional acts, and there is no way to tell if a mechanical failure or power loss made the air conditioner stop working.

The dogs were being kept in an outbuilding because the shelter was overcrowded
