LIVINGSTON, La. (AP) - Three members of the Livingston Parish Animal Control Advisory Committee have resigned, leaving officials scrambling to determine how to fix the parish's stray animal problem.
The parish operates the Livingston Parish Animal Shelter in the town of Livingston, but the shelter can house only dogs and will pick up strays only in the town because it donated land for the shelter.
Terri Dunlap, president of the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals of Livingston, one of those that resigned, tells The Advocate she stepped down because she felt shelter officials weren't following through with the committee's recommendations.
Parish Councilman Chance Parent said he was not surprised to hear about the resignations because the Parish President's Office has been unable to work well with the committee.
