This is the latest on developments surrounding the alleged shooting of shelter dogs in Chesterfield Co, SC. This post will be updated if new information emerges today.
“The citizens of Chesterfield County will once again have animals running wild.”
But today I came across this article which says:
According to shelter records, six animals were killed and 12 others were released elsewhere.
Whoa. I’m trying to figure out what that means exactly. Released to rescue? Released to another shelter? Released to a research facility? Released as in “Run, frolic and be free, you wascals!”? I fear it’s the latter. In which case, it would seem that the Sheriff’s warning may have been based on the actions of his own ACOs. Dang, this thing just keeps getting uglier.
One bit of good news. I just got off the phone with the Fourth Circuit Solicitor’s Office. They are saying the investigation has been turned over to the SC Law Enforcement Division (SLED). SLED will determine if any criminal actions will be brought and if so, the state AG will prosecute. This is progress. I think all the phone calls and letters are having an impact.
The Solicitor’s office is preparing a press release, probably for the end of the week.
