  • Marion's problem not Taylor County dogs, Harris says


    Many dogs have been picked up near the Taylor/Marion county line recently by Marion County animal control officials, but John Harris, director of the Taylor County Animal Shelter, says he doesn’t believe those dogs are coming from Taylor County.

    “We had 96 dogs brought to our shelter in November, and 54 in December. In January, we had 102, and that’s just the dogs brought in from Taylor County,” Harris said. “The numbers are why I don’t believe they are Taylor County dogs.”
