The recent spell of subzero temperatures in conjunction with record snowfall and wind has left some domestic animals out in the cold. Pet owners are urged to make sure their animals have shelter outside if they are to be out for more than a bathroom break. Not only does the shelter have to provide cover, it should have an insulated floor and food and water should be available.
“We go to every animal call,” said Laurel Chief of Police Rick Musson. “The officers have to make the judgement call. Some animals are better suited to be outside than others. But we have removed animals.”
