Tennessee’s former top vaccination official, who was fired in July, may have sent herself a dog muzzle, and there’s no evidence it was intended to threaten her, a new state investigation found.

A new investigative report from the Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security obtained by The Tennessean indicates the muzzle was paid for with Dr. Michelle Fiscus’ own American Express credit card.

“There is no evidence to indicate that the dog muzzle was intended to threaten Dr. Fiscus,” Special Agent Mario Vigil wrote in a memo attached to the case that closed Monday. 

Fiscus in July reportedly received an anonymous package containing a muzzle days before was fired from the Tennessee Department of Health, her husband Brad Fiscus told The Tennessean at the time.
