Guns, Ammo Seized in Animal Services Audit

Olsen Ebright and Ryan Bourgard | August 4, 2011

Animal control officers were taken by surprise Thursday when the LAPD showed up to collect all their firearms.

The raid was organized by Animal Services itself, and carried out by police.

“To all personnel: Re weapons and ammunition audit. Please give the LAPD all handguns, rifles, shotguns and ammunition that are at your shelter,” wrote Animal Services general manager Brenda Barnette in a letter given out by police during the raid.

The department’s self-inflicted gun audit comes about two weeks after City Controller Wendy Greuel announced on July 20 plans to conduct a top-to-bottom audit of Animal Services.

Officers from the LAPD’s Gang and Operations Support Division-Guns Section went to all six shelters operated by Animal Services. About 100 guns were seized.

    Los Angeles animal control officers are now to go toe-to-to against Uzis with their well-sharpened pencils. Seems even enough to me.
