Generally Boks posts the department's statistics a few days after he posts his glowing reports on the 6th of the month.
His blog mentioned the wonderful April outcome, but he never posted the raw statistics for curious readers--like myself--to do an independent analysis. Without independent analysis, we are getting no more than his opinion of how the shelters made out that month.
Therefore several of us suspect this will be the worst April in years, with adoptions down, died in shelter up, intake up, and with stats that show many more animals were being impounded than left the shelter, meaning they were piling up inside, which I have been hearing in email after email.
Therefore, I ask readers to email Mr. Boks asking where are the COMPLETE April statistics?
Is there a Council review coming up where he doesn't want to be questioned about a very poor April performance?
