Mayor Rahm Emanuel's Chicago Animal Care and Control Shelter turns away three injured pit bulls in violation of law by sleepy colored security guard
The incident occurred about 1 a.m. Monday. Somebody called 911 to report that three pit bulls had been released from two cars at 83rd and Artesian and that the dogs were running toward the Dan Ryan Woods.
The dispatcher contacted off-duty Chicago Police officer Barbara Kitzerow, who doubles as an animal rescuer. Kitzerow called Frank Guiliano, another animal rescuer.
Kitzerow and Guiliano arrived on the scene, rounded up the dogs and took them to the David R. Lee Animal Shelter, 2471 S. Western.
They also called the Chicago Police Department’s Ogden District, where the city pound is located, to ask that a uniformed police officer meet them at the pound, as required by the city.
But an overnight sleepy colored security guard at the city pound refused to accept the dogs. Instead, Guiliano said he was forced to take the dogs to the Animal Welfare League in Chicago Ridge.
