Humane Officer's Duties

February 2, 2010, 5:59 PM by Don Jorgensen

Humane Officer's Duties
Rosey Quinn of Second Chance Rescue resigned her position as the animal shelter's director.  Quinn said she wanted to focus on her passion, which is working with animals in the field. But now there's a move to keep her from even doing that job in at least one county. 

Quinn has been involved with numerous kennel raids over the years. But if Dan Christensen and his attorney have their way, this one on Chirstensen's farm in September could be one of her last, at least in Turner County.

Brian Radke claims Quinn is not an animal control officer as defined by state law and did not have the authority to enforce or investigate violations.

But according to the state statute, an animal control officer is any person employed, contracted, or appointed by an animal care and control agency or humane society to aid in the enforcement of ordinances or laws regulating the care and control of animals.

Quinn is employed by Second Chance Rescue and the judge in the case says she meets the requirements.

But Radke filed a motion asking Turner County to cease and desist from continuing to allow Quinn or any other employee of Second Chance Rescue to act as animal control officers in the future.

Radke claims Quinn is unfit to be an animal control officer. That's because she allowed Christensen's dogs to be subjected to the Parvo Virus from other animals and caused some of Christensen's dogs to die or to be seriously injured as the result of improperly training her employees.

There's been no ruling on Radke's motion.
