KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- A special investigation aired by Fox 4 on Thursday night exposed new evidence we found in two high-profile alleged animal abuse cases. It also explained the requirements for animal control officers and the fact that animal control officers aren't connected with the Kansas City Police Department.
Because of Fox 4's investigation, a metro woman started a Change.org petition addressed to Mayor Sly James, City Manager Troy Schulte, and City Council. The petition demands a change to the way Animal Control is operated in Kansas City.
