I have received a few things to share regarding Carol Lynch, the Memphis ACO who is apparently the target of retaliatory charges by the city for her actions as a whistleblower. First, a note received via e-mail from a Memphis resident:
Who is one animal control officer at Memphis Animal Services who we can count on to go on a call when an animal is suffering?
Who goes to Judge Potter’s animal cruelty court to make sure the owners of dogs who are starved and abused are fined (or hopefully jailed)….
There are not enough adjectives to describe the good that she does! So Memphis Animal Services threatens her? Where is the justice in this? What message is Mayor Wharton sending to the real criminals who work at Memphis Animal Services?– Jan Courtney
Second, a Facebook group in support of ACO Lynch.
And third, a petition telling Mayor Wharton not to punish Carol Lynch for acting to protect pets at MAS.
