Posted: 2/6/2018 5:00 PM

In response to the recent discovery of discarded animal remains in rural Lafayette Parish, Mayor-President Joel Robideaux makes the following statement:

“I am appalled and saddened by this shocking discovery. When I learned of the situation, my administration immediately offered assistance to the Sheriff’s Office and the State Veterinarian in their investigations. One of my earliest commitments to the citizens of Lafayette Parish was to be an advocate for animals and I found overwhelming support for our no kill initiative. As we continue those efforts, rest assured, we will not tolerate the callous treatment and shameful disposal of our animals.”
