    Humane Society Workers Can Now Carry Concealed Weapons

    Humane Society Workers Can Now Carry Concealed Weapons
    Some humane society workers are carrying guns while they care for animals.

    Lawrence Journal world is reporting that humane society employees in Lawrence can now arm themselves with concealed weapons while on the job.

    Employees there say it's due to increased danger while working. The shelter is the only one in Kansas that investigates all cruelty and neglect cases in its county.

    Workers have encountered angry pet owners who sometimes become a threat. One employee recalled many pet owners using violence as a way to retrieve their pets at any cost.

    All weapon carriers have gone through animal cruelty training and conceal-carry training.
    Good for them!!

    Wow! That's a pretty big step for such a liberal town. This is the same town that sent complimentary 'gunbuster' signs with the 'no smoking' signs to the local businesses.

    Well, if you think like a PETA-file, it makes perfect sense to use deadly force against a human to save an animal.

    Don't get me wrong, I volunteer with an animal rescue group, but I'm the weird guy.
    I'm not a lawyer or a LEO, just a pantload with a computer.

    I like this, at least someone is connecting 'armed' with defense, instead of expecting to hide in a closet.

    And you can bet if someone shot a dog they'd call it felony animal cruelty.

    I agree the shelter workers need protection from irate folks and kooks, but I can not put an animal's life above a humans.

    So they're not LEOs but on Animal Planet they have Animal Cops show where some "LEOs" are unarmed. Curious.

    Darn right. If it came down to the lives of my dogs over the life of a scumbag intent on hurting them, I would choose my dogs.

    Not so in some cases with me. I rate some forms of human scum of lesser value than many animals.

    This isn't really about the value of animal life vs. human life. It says in the article that this is the only agency tasked with dealing with reports of neglected and abused animals in its area. I sure wouldn't want to seize some tweaker's malnourished pit-bull without a sidearm! A lot of meth-heads are full on paranoid schizophrenics when on the binge.
