Grand Traverse County Animal Control Officer Fired

A Grand Traverse County animal control officer has been fired.

The county started an investigation into Deb Zerafa in May.

On June 5 she was put on paid administrative leave.

Friday morning Zerafa says she received a “corrective action form” terminating her, effective immediately for “deceitful and questionable conduct.”

Zerafa has worked with the department since 2016 and says she’s been unlawfully terminated.

We reached out to the health department, but they couldn’t give us any more details.
