The city of Las Vegas has been cremating animals euthanized at its shelter for years, but that practice changed recently when it learned that its incinerator was no longer safe to operate.
The incinerator, which is used as a crematory for both euthanized animals and roadkill, has been out of commission for three months.
The determination that the incinerator is no longer safe to operate came from NCE-Crawford-Emcotek, the company that manufactured it.
