  1. Ah, the county is trying to wiggle out of the whistleblower case because the woman didn’t contact police. She DID report it to the director, who was in charge of animal cruelty cases in the county AND the commissioners, in charge of the shelter. Not sure what they would expect the police to have done. Hope she gets her million. That’s the only way these places seem willing to change – lawsuits.
