You Got The Pet-Killing Dogcatcher Canned
SOURCE: Kinship Circle's anonymous source in Gerald, Missouri
12/7/07: Serial Pet Killer Goes Unpunished In Small Town -- We share news that at least HALF of what we called for in letters has occurred: The Gerald City Council voted to FIRE the dogcatcher who lured, trapped and shot companion animals at close range. Though dogcatcher Dean Tadaro is jobless, he has NOT been charged with violating animal cruelty statutes. Below is an update from KC¹s anonymous source, a resident of Gerald, Missouri:
"Brenda, last night the City Council meeting was packed! The lady from the Humane Society of Missouri (Brenda Dean) spoke. The mother of the little girl's missing cat spoke. The report from the Missouri Dept. of Agriculture (Mary Martin) was read... Many in the audience had their say and the City Clerk spoke of being swamped with phone calls, fax messages, etc. to the point where they could not get their normal work done this week!
The Council voted to fire the dogcatcher and to get a license and abide by the rules/regulations of the state. So, thanks to your help and others we WON for the humane treatment of all animals in our small town! "
