Woman Cited For Trespassing At Animal Shelter

KSAL StaffAugust 27, 2013

A 71-year-old Hill City woman has been charged with trespassing for entering the city animal shelter to care for dogs she felt weren’t being treated properly.

Melissa Scott pleaded guilty recently to trespassing at the city dog pound, where she said the dogs didn’t have proper shelter from the sun and lacked water. She went into the fenced-in area, which is located at the city wastewater plant, sprayed down the dogs and held up blankets and boards to block the sun.

Scott appeared in municipal court and pleaded guilty to trespassing. She says she now plans to present the issue to the city council.

Hill City Police Chief Russ Ingle says the dogs aren’t mistreated, have 5-gallon water pans and are in shaded pens.
