Take a look at the And-For-My-Next-Trick-I’ll-Jump-Through-These Rings-of-Fire adoption application required to save a pet from being killed by the Scott Co pound in KY. The last question on the form is:
Would you allow a home visit by a representative of the Scott County Animal Shelter?
See, the Scott Co ACO must judge you. To see if you are good enough to save a homeless pet from going to the landfill.
Scott Co ACO Leitha Burton was on-call Monday night when she took the county AC truck home with her. But instead of responding to emergency animal calls that night, ACO Burton allegedly got drunk and her truck smashed into two vehicles and a house on her street, causing over $30,000 in damages.
When police arrived at the crash scene, they reportedly found ACO Burton alone:
Police say Burton was charged with DUI because she admitted to drinking and driving, and because she smelled of an alcoholic beverage and was unsteady on her feet.
While ACO Burton reportedly admitted to drinking and driving the county truck shortly before the crash, she claimed another woman had been driving at the time of the crash and that the driver had run away before police arrived. Police are investigating. Meantime, it’s business as usual in Scott Co:
Scott County Judge-Executive George Lusby says Burton won’t be disciplined without a conviction and her use of county property will be examined.
Any adoption applicants volunteering to have ACO Burton drive over to their house to pass judgement on them?
