Many of you have asked about requesting additional security camera footage from MAS. Some suggested specifically the day after The Compassionate Chokepole training class. I thought this was a good idea – a chance to see the immediate effects with animals hopefully being handled humanely. The request was filed but unfortunately, the city failed to respond within the time allowed by law. The city also failed to respond to follow up requests. By the time the city did respond (today), we were advised that the footage had been overwritten.
This is not transparency. This is not accountability. This is not integrity.
We will of course continue to pursue these public records in an effort to hold MAS accountable. I will keep you updated as things develop.
