Fired vet sues animal shelter, claims animals are beheaded
BATON ROUGE- A fired veterinarian from the animal shelter filed suit, claiming she lost her job after blowing the whistle on illegal animal beheadings and other issues at the controversial shelter.
Amy Cangelosi hired attorney Jill Craft and sued Companion Animal Alliance. She accuses the shelter, some key leaders, and East Baton Rouge government of neglecting questionable practices.
Craft said standards are not being met. The suit also alleges workers have access to shelter drugs but don't have the certification to handle them.
The shelter did not return calls for a comment on this story.
