BATON ROUGE- City leaders want the group in charge of day-to-day operations at the Animal Shelter to answer questions and allegations about mistreatment at the shelter.

Wednesday, Companion Animal Alliance has been asked to present a report to Metro Council about the operations and the facility.

The agenda item also calls for "whatever action is necessary."

Recently, people have complained about conditions for the animals at the shelter. A city report suggests there is trouble with the management's organization.

"There was a lack of the realization that this is an open intake animal shelter, and it's very difficult to run," said Hilton Cole of Animal Control in a recent interview with WBRZ News2.

Metro Council meets at 4 p.m. Wednesday. Other discussions at the meeting will include over saturation of businesses selling alcohol and a buyout plan for a neighborhood close to a treatment plant in North Baton Rouge.
