LBL&#39;s Denise Scmittou says abandoned animals are a burden to LBL staff who must capture the animals and find a suitable shelter.

She says people unable to take care of their animals have plenty of options other than abandonment.</p> Fri, 06 Apr 2012 17:40:06 +0000 Seth Helton 17548 at http://wkms.org Abandoned Animals Problem for Public Lands
