Protecting your pets in freezing weather

BATESVILLE, Ark. (KTHV) - Just like humans, animals can also be at risk for frostbite and hypothermia.

One important safety tip: don't leave your pets in the car, as it can get as cold as a refrigerator. Veterinarians also recommend investing in some winter gear for your animals, and keeping them layered.

"Big things are tips of ears, tail tips and the paws are pretty susceptible to frost bite, and it just takes a few minutes really. The cold and the salt and everything in those paw pads can cause cracking and bleeding." said Veterinarian Dr. Travis Anderson.

BATESVILLE, Ark. (KTHV) - White River Regional Juvenile Detention Center (JDC) is facing charges after an investigator discovered punishment violations to its youth. 

According to reports, the facility violated state standards by using restraints and 23-hour lock downs as a punishment for juveniles. 

Arkansas Department of Human Services internal investigator April Hannah found that some of the children at JDC were being handcuffed when they weren't causing any harmful or threatening situations. She also discovered that the facility used the 23-hour lockdown as a punishment for banging on doors or talking.  

Children are no longer being sent to JDC, and 14 at the facility will be moved to other detention centers.
