Description

We investigated why Kansas City and Jackson County rarely prosecuted cases of animal abuse. We learned animal control officers in Kanas City have no training or background in investigating these type of cases. Our investigation revealed only three cases of animal abuse were sumbitted for felony prosecution in the past two years. http://fox4kc.com/2015/03/31/woman-says-shes-lost-trust-in-kc-heartbroken-by-the-way-her-dead-dog-was-dumped/ http://fox4kc.com/2015/01/30/resident-demands-change-following-fox-4-investigation-into-kcmo-animal-abuse/ http://fox4kc.com/2015/01/29/fox-4-investigation-are-kc-animal-abusers-being-held-accountable-for-cruelty/
