DA Looks into Animal Abuse Allegations

The Cumberland County district attorney is setting ground rules for animal abuse allegations after animal rights activists say animal control officers are not charging people who abuse animals. "It appeared to me that there was some misunderstanding on both sides on what the rights and responsibilities of the protocol were," said District Attorney Randall York. WATE News Channel 6 also reports that the county may be looking at forming a task force to oversee animal abuse cases.
