County Health and Welfare Committee chairperson Sally Brock has informed the district attorney that dogs were stolen from the pit behind the Animal Control building.Brock said she received a phone call from Leigh Ann McCollum, Tennessee state director for the Humane Society of the United States. McCollum said she spoke to a person who admitted taking the dogs from the pit in order to take them to a vet to determine cause of death. Animal Control director Kim Pettrey said a dog which had suffered from mange and had been euthanized four days previously had been “doctored up” to look bloody for a news broadcast airing on Channel 4 News claiming mistreatment at the facility.
