Petition grows for who whould care ror Bureau County beagles

Posted by wlpo on March 4, 2014

An online petition to make sure horses and beagles don’t stay with an Arlington man is getting attention from all over the world.

Well over 15,000 people have “signed” the online petition.  Recent petition supporters come from places like France, Belgium, Nicaragua and the Ukraine.

The petition is asking the Illinois Department of Agriculture not to return over a dozen beagles and seven horses to Dan Labounty.  The animals are being cared for by the Bureau County Animal Control Office.  Animal control and rescue officials think Labounty can’t care for all the animals and is violating the Illinois Humane Care for Animals Act.

A hearing on the animals is Wednesday in Springfield.  You will find the petition here.
