NC - Photos of cats holding knives, cigarettes prompts animal control investigation
In an e-mail to city leaders, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Chief Rodney Monroe said his department had been investigating the "inappropriate" pictures since August.
One picture showed a cat, apparently sedated, with a cigarette in its mouth and a knife in its paws.
Another showed a cat with a pen in its mouth.
One showed a ferret that's missing fur, with a caption that read "someone thought it would be funny to Nair" the animal.
A whistleblower alerted a website that employees at the animal shelter had posted the pictures on Facebook.
Monroe said a review board was formed last week to determine what will happen to the employees.I started out with nothing, and I still have most of it left.

I love my babies (see Avatar) and if I knew of anyone doing this to them, I'd be furious. My littlest one was just neutered a few weeks ago, and while you think they're being put in the best hands, often times they're not. This is such a sad story.
To think a responsible owner paid for this humiliation is sickening. To me it's a really big deal!

This breaks my heart! I love my cat more than I love most human beings (and I love human beings). At least once a year I have to place her in the Cat Inn (I would never leave my baby alone in the house) and I love all the employee's there. They spoil my cat even more than I spoil her. This just reminded me that I have to take my cats annual X-Mas picture/card and send them a one.
