Inhumane Treatment at Wexford Co. Animal Shelter Discussed at Special Meeting

Posted: Updated:

Allegations of inhumane treatment at a local animal shelter are tearing a community apart.

A special meeting was held tonight in Cadillac to discuss allegations of inhumane treatment at the Wexford County Animal Shelter.

Many at the meeting say they witnessed euthanizations without sedation first hand, while others say that's just not true.

For now, a veterinarian will oversee any euthanizations that take place at the shelter, which is currently being investigated by the state.

9 & 10's Meredith Barack and photojournalist Jeff Blakeman were at the meeting and heard concerns from many.
