Target: Wichita Police Department Animal Control Lieutenant, Steve Kenney
Goal: Punish two women who are allegedly pretending to be animal control officers and kidnapping animals.
Two mysterious women are allegedly posing as Animal Control officers and attempting to confiscate dogs outside of homes in Wichita, Kansas. This behavior has caused the police to send out a warning to residents in the Wichita area to be on high alert of two women going around taking animals they believe are being neglected.
The case was first brought to light because neighbors reportedly saw the two women removing two dogs from a home and claiming to be with Animal Control. They said that the dogs looked to be underweight so they had to take them. They were driving in a pickup truck with a kennel.
Wichita police warn that every animal control officer will carry along with them a badge attached to their utility belt. Legitimate animal control officers will always have a proper uniform and a state-issued identification card along with a photograph. Plus, Animal Control does not use pickup trucks, they use city vans to get the animals.
The women may think that they are doing a good thing by saving these animals, but they are actually breaking the law and separating people from their beloved pets.
Please sign this petition to support the punishment of these two animal control impostors.
Dear Lieutenant Steve Kenney,
Two women have allegedly been walking around a Wichita, Kansas neighborhood pretending to be animal control to save malnourished animals. They may think that what they are doing is saving animals, but they are actually breaking the law. They do not have the right tools and equipment to help save these animals. They are actually kidnapping these residents’ pets.
If an individual or group desires to save neglected animals, the best thing to do is to call the right people to help. In the past, this type of behavior can turn into a blown out animal-hoarding situation where the animals would be in even more danger than they were originally in. Please be on high alert and find these two women and charge them for reportedly kidnapping these dogs. Make them understand that what they are doing is very illegal. The last thing a group of neglected dogs needs is to be kept in the care of two impostors.
[Your Name Here]
