NC animal shelter investigated for 'inappropriate' photos of cats

Nov 23, 2010 10:44:00 AM - thestate.com
Pictures of animals holding knives and cigarettes have prompted an investigation of employees at Mecklenburg County Animal Care and Control.

In an e-mail to city leaders, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Chief Rodney Monroe said his department had been investigating the "inappropriate" pictures since August, according to The Herald's news partner, WSOC-TV.

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.
