No more Animal Control Officer
I am writing about the article about the local animal control officer position being eliminated in New Martinsville. First of all, I cannot believe they feel it's not a necessary position when I'm sure the shelter get hundreds of calls from people who should have called the city instead. Now, because they have chosen to discontinue the business of animal control as they have so carelessly put it, the shelter will now be receiving even more calls that they'll have no choice but to turn away and then report them to the sheriff or local police departments where, more times than not, are not seen as a priority. I read of how people should be taking care of the many cats in the city and there's an ordinance for this. Big deal. The ordinance will be nothing but words on some piece of paper. Animals are 3rd class citizens and always will be uncared for and mistreated by too many people.
