This YOUTUBE Video alleges horrific animal cruelty in Georgia animal control in violation of State and Federal laws (Animal Welfare Act). Keep in mind these are dogs, cats, puppies and kittens the video alleges are being put in trash bags - STILL ALIVE - and suffocating, buried alive. Being buried alive constitutes animal cruelty and is a horrible way to die.

According to the testimony in this video, it alleges, "animals have been buried alive at Floyd County Animal Control." Yes-put in trash bags-still alive. Dogs, cats, puppies, kittens. Clearly this is horrific animal cruelty. Animal control is part of the County's and State's responsibility and euthanasia must be done HUMANELY in compliance with local and State laws, and the Federal Animal Welfare Act.

According to this video and testimony: "The same employees have worked at this shelter for years. The GA State Dept of Ag has turned a blind eye to the cruelty in GA shelters. Walker County was burying animals alive and the GA Dept of Ag did nothing when we reported the crimes. GA Dept of Ag is in breach of contract of their duties at the animal protection division and tax payer funds to this dept are wasted.
This is an x employee from Floyd County that loves animals and could not take what he witnessed at this shelter so he has come forward to speak about the cruelty at the Floyd County Animal Control. Open records should be pulled now. We have requested these records in the past and somehow the current administration believes they do not have animals are to abide by the Sunshine Laws."

Please initiate investigations regarding these allegations and if need be,  to invoke  laws against animal cruelty in your State, and prosecute all involved if found guilty of this horrific cruelty.
