The powers that be underestimate the tenacity of animal advocates who speak for those who have no voice.
There has been a violation of the law regarding abandonment of an animal and a refusal to prosecute the sheriff's deputy who not only admitted trapping a cat, he told them he "took care of the problem." This cat was not a "problem." It was an indoor cat that had gotten out. Observation and testimony indicate this deputy was out of control and might better serve the public behind a desk!
To say that the law is nonspecific as to who can be prosecuted and who can't is an attempt to give this deputy a pass.
An ordinance to make it a misdemeanor to abandon or dump an animal? You've got to be kidding!
