EUGENE, OR (KPTV) -

A Eugene woman is blaming local police for the death of her dog after she was arrested and sent to jail for several weeks.

Tamala Bemis said she was living out of her car with her dog Magic.

When she was arrested earlier this month, she told police to take care of her dog and make sure she was safe.

Bemis said she returned to her car 17 days later and found Magic dead inside.

Eugene Police said they did try to look for Bemis’ car on the scene but could not find it.

Police are currently investigating the incident.
