The East Baton Rouge Metro Council approved spending for a new stock yard for the East Baton Rouge Animal Control and Rescue Center.

Animal Control lost its privileges to house seized livestock at a local, area stock yard. Director Hilton Cole requested $18,500 to build one of their own. The money paid for the materials which are being pieced together now by Animal Control crews.

Three horses were seized in July from a wooded area in North Baton Rouge amid reports of shots fired. Animal Control was forced to put those horses in a pen normally used to house dogs.

The new stock yard is not complete but enough is done to house large animals like horses, cattle or sheep if needed.
