A friend in North Hollywood is under siege, with ACTF personnel telling him they are cops and they can do whatever they want, whenever they want and need not abide by agree appointment rules. They had demanded immediate entry and confiscation of all cats over three. When this person refused, they said they'd be back with a warrant. I also note this person has complained about someone poisoning his cats and was told by the ACTF that they didn't have the resources to investigate the poisonings----despite that is one of their listed mission purposes. Still, they can send scads of personnel after him.
Remeber Ron Mason, one female member of the ACTF said they could take whatever they wanted, whenever they wanted.
Then there is the story of the Beverly Hills woman below who could go to jail because the City has ordered her to stop feeding ferals, rescuing them and placing them. She states she may have placed a thousand over the years.
Then Jimmy may go to jail too on July 1 because of the bogus Union Pacific charge that he sleeps on their property with his 4 cats.
What is going on?
Has LAAS and the ACTF declared war of cat owners? Has the Kennel law become LAAS and ACTF main field activity?
Remember, ACTF Officer Munez told me that feral AND lost cat colonies, feeders, and people with too many cats are their biggest problem.
I didn't know that Cardenas had in mind that the Animal Cruelty's top enforcement effort would be to snuff out neighborhood disputes by impound and killing hundreds of cats.
Tell me it is not so Mr. Cardenas.
I am about to do a request for records to see how much of the Task Force's time and energy are spend on harassing people that have been reported by neighbors as having too many cats (or dogs), versus any other animal abuse allegations.
Remember, "too many cats" is a violations of Municipal Code 53.50, the kennel law. This is merely a license violation, an infraction. These people are then arrested on any number of changes, jailed, forced to provide bail ($20,000 for Ron Mason), have all their animals seized, impounded, and ultimately killed.
What is going on here? Are we living in hell?
