Matt Pepper tells the Fox affiliate in Memphis that he will be leaving MAS the first week of September and talks about his replacement:
He said at least in the interim, Chelton Beamon, the shelter’s operations manager will take over.
These webcam grabs appear to show Mr. Beamon out of uniform in the stray area at MAS one late night in June, a few days before Kapone was picked up by an ACO and went “missing” from MAS shortly thereafter. Regular readers might recognize Mr. Beamon’s name from the Kapone story as it was he who reportedly explained to Mrs. Shoup that her pet could not be found.
As for Mr. Pepper’s future, WREG reports he “will start a new job as Animal Control Director in Albuquerque in Mid-September”. Do we have any NM readers familiar with the facility in Albuquerque?
