Animal shelter practices questioned

Sarah Okeson of Florida Today investigated the Brevard County animal services department after questions have been raised about how the Animal Services & Enforcement Department is being run. Allegations include one employee who has been illegally selling animals from the shelters. An audit found that the ownership records of 43 animals were changed in the department's database with no other documentation other than a sticky note, and that whereabouts of at least 29 animals are unknown.
