Animal Rights Case Progresses

Aug 1, 2012

A pair of former McCracken County Humane Society employees accused of animal cruelty will be tried separately. According to The Paducah Sun, Assistant County Attorney Todd Jones said Beau Anderson will be tried on nine counts of animal cruelty separately from current general manager DaLena Hall. However, the pair will still be tried together on forgery and unlawful euthanasia charges. Anderson and Hall are accused of forging euthanasia documents. The trial comes almost nine months after McCracken County sheriff’s detectives used undercover cameras to videotape Anderson improperly euthanizing dogs at the humane society. Two weeks later, Hall was charged with euthanizing ten cats without a license.
