Kevin Wilkins: Director of the Animal Control moved here from Wisconsin, he is originally from Illinois. He would like it if some people would come into Animal Control and sign up for volunteering. He talked about never relocating wild animals. He suggests that you trap them and take them to animal control. He said if you relocate them to a nature center for instance, they could have a disease and give it to other animals. We are down to 3 animal control officers. This is hurting response time. Animal Control now has a staff of 26. Threating animals have top priority. If it is an emergency, call the police 911. You can always drop an animal off at the shelter. There is a fenced off area in the back that you can take them to. Dog packs are up quite a bit this year. Euthanasia is 60% down.
