Animal Shelter Mistakes Pet Dog For Coyote
Ten year old “Copper” was lost on July 3rd, then found the same day by police. But officials at the Franklin County Humane Society mistook her for a coyote and told police to release her back into the wild. Now some animal lovers are taking their frustration to the people who help fund the Franklin County Humane Society.
A humane society board member apologized to Copper’s owner for what’s been called a terrible mistake. Copper’s owner has gotten calls from all over the country, even substantial money for a reward from PETA.
Animal advocates asked the Board of Commissioners to revoke their funding of the Franklin County Humane Society. They requested that the Board provide more oversight of the Humane Society’s training, policies and procedures.
There is $1750 reward for her return.
