A Louisiana animal shelter is struggling to get back on its feet after someone vandalized the building, destroyed food supplies, and stole property. The DeRidder Animal Control facility was targeted by someone who was determined to wreak havoc. The DeRidder Police Department outlined the damage sustained in the May 30 break-in:
"two or more persons broke into the DeRidder Animal Control facility and caused a considerate amount of damage. The five dogs housed were released but since have been located and returned to the kennels unharmed. The main office and shop were ransacked and all the dog food is now contaminated with some type of fuel."
"The shelves that stores food for the elderly have been destroyed and all that food is also contaminated. The security cameras as well as the computer for the cameras were taken along with a gas powered trimmer."
Whoever is responsible for this crime must be found and punished!
