It was part of a class of students at a Mecsa elementary school in Mayport.
The owner of the toy said he brought it home for a birthday present, but it wasn’t until a few weeks later when his dog decided to eat it.
“I came home one day and it was still on the shelf,” said Mike McArthur.
“I looked at the shelf and I was like, ‘I didn’t even put it there.'”
The owner had just received a bill from the school and the school’s dog care program, MECSEA, says they are going to refund the owner’s money.
“The school’s not aware of the issue,” said Jennifer McCollough, the school system’s director of animal welfare.
McArthur said he’s glad to hear about the dog’s reward, but he’s worried it won’t be enough.
“We’re hoping that it’ll help to bring awareness to this issue that can be easily prevented,” he said.
“It’s like a toy, and the owner didn’t think that it was safe for her dog,” McArthur said.MECSEA says they have contacted the school, and they’re hoping for a quick resolution.
