Area Animal Control Director In Trouble

Posted by wlpo on July 31, 2011

YORKVILLE, Ill. (AP) – An animal control officer in Yorkville is on administrative leave after the wrong dog was
euthanized and another with a violent history was adopted.

Christine Johnson, administrator of Kendall County’s Animal  Control facility in Yorkville, said Friday that she “made a mistake”  and had lied about putting down Moose. The bull mastiff was ordered  destroyed after biting three people, including a 6-year-old boy in the face.

Moose was instead adopted by a family in another county. It is unclear if the dog will now be euthanized. Johnson admitted she knew of the mistake about a week after the wrong dog was euthanized.
