Here’s an update on the Lake County Animal Shelter Media Frenzy.
Wednesday I told you about Lake County Florida’s Sheriff Gary Borders fired Animal Services Director Jacquelyn Johnston after 147 animals were sheltered during her 9-day tenure.
Today Ms. Johnston fired back with a letter penned by her attorney that accused shelter supervisor Jennifer Ferguson for the euthanizations, stating that on the day the 20 animals were euthanized, Ms. Johnston was out of the county and not available to give written authorization for the euthanizations.
She goes on to say that Ms. Ferguson also interviewed for the Director position, and killed the animals because she was angry over having been passed over for Johnston.
Ms. Johnston has received death threats from around the world since news broke of her firing.
I guess now Ms. Ferguson will get a little taste of that too.
