---- — I fully support the hiring of a well-trained animal cruelty investigator by Otsego County officials. I stress the importance of “well-trained.”
I was involved in a cruelty investigation in the early 1990s that was mismanaged and resulted in legal mistakes and penalties against hordes of well-meaning people and organizations. This highlighted the need for a “well-trained” investigator and professional investigatory protocol.
