TWO PEOPLE FOUND DEAD
WGAL states the following:
Police are investigating the deaths but said the case isn’t suspicious and foul play is not suspected.
* According to the actual ordinance, I’m not sure this person should have had a python in the first place (see below and click here for the ordinance and the definition of a wild/exotic animal).
Similarly, it is illegal for the owner of any animal to allow the animal to go beyond the boundaries of their premises or to run at large over the streets or public grounds or upon the property of another.
From the Manheim Township CrimeWatch entry on feral cats and other animals including “reptiles,” (click here).
Not to beat a dead horse, but I seriously want to know why the owner of the 8-foot python was not cited.
Please check back later today.
FERAL CAT OR PYTHON?
So the Manheim Township police cited a 78-year-old man for “caring” for feral cats but did not cite the owner of this snake (click here)? And according to this article, a neighbor said this was the third time the snake got loose. Who owned the snake? Why weren’t they cited?
And in the LNP article there is also this:
According to Sergeant Michael Piacentino, Manheim Township police do not typically respond to animal calls unless the animals pose a danger to the public.
What in the world? Feral cats or an 8-foot python?
** My guess is the Manheim Township Police Department will not appreciate this very recent news article run by Fox-43 (click here).
YOU CAN’T KILL THEM
& YOU CAN’T FEED THEM!
* Remember when a man shot and killed a cat and LNP kept it as a lead story for days and the comments under it exploded (click here)? The below commenter later even offered to pay someone $20.00 to take his strays, but still no one came!
Ok, Cat lovers which one of you will take the 5 strays I have? The mother was dropped off in my yard and had kittens 7 months ago. SPCA won’t take them and none of the other shelters in Lancaster county will either, I have called them all. SPCA charges $ 50.00 per cat and still wouldn’t take them. I caught three and took them to the Lancaster branch willing to pay the $ 150.00, but they say the cats are too feral and I had to bring them back home. TNR is $ 30.00 to $ 50.00 each and I have to bring the cats back home. I don’t want the cats they keep killing birds at my feeders.
ARE GETTING CATTY?
From today’s police log (click here), a random photo of feral cats.
How was he caring for them? Was he feeding them? How do the police know the cats are feral? What about people who allow their cats to be outside and roam? How much will this citation cost Mr. Snoke?
