With County Cutbacks, It's Dog-Eat-Cat World

Juice reported last month that Broward's Animal Care and Regulation Department has been operating with an insufficient number of staff at least for the past year since a consulting firm issued a critical report about the agency. In particular, the study found that the county's animal control lacked field staff -- the workers who are responsible for finding and capturing dangerous animals, like the ones terrorizing the local feline community.
Rather than hire more staff, the cash-strapped county budget-makers are considering a move to privatize the agency. In the meantime, beware of dogs. That goes for cats and humans.
