Wait Could Be Over Soon On Bureau County Beagle Decision

Posted by wlpo on March 10, 2014

The fate of seven horses and over a dozen beagles in Bureau County could be announced at any time.

Members of Illinois Valley Animal Rescue testified in Springfield last Wednesday that the beagles and horses should not be returned to owner Dan Labounty in rural Arlington.  They argue Labounty has had the animals living in unacceptable conditions for many years.  The animals are temporarily being cared for by members of the Bureau County Animal Control Office.

The hearing judge has five days from last week’s hearing to give his decision.  Meanwhile an online petition pleading for the horses and beagles to not return to their owner has reached over 26 thousand “signatures”.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
