For Local Control
I was shocked to learn that LA County animal control officers based in Carson can come from as far away as Rolling Hills or Beverly Hills are responding to a call from Culver City. What a terrible waste of time and money!
Not to mention the fact that by the time they arrive in Culver City, it may be too late. We have a very fast response time from the Culver City Police Department for things like muggings; why not for dog attacks that can be even more dangerous?
Dead Animal Hazard
As a doctor and long time resident of Culver City, I am sick and tired of seeing dead animals lying in our streets for a prolonged period of time. Besides being hideous to look at, these animals are prey for other animals and rodents and are a health hazard.
I say that we need someone in town whose job it is to dispose of dead animals immediately, before they pose a health threat to the rest of us. Better yet, how about an animal control officer who can pick up stray animals and return them to their homes before they become a hazard to drivers, or road kill?
