My question involves personal property located in the State of: Indiana
I was told that an Animal control Officer has the ability to euthanize an animal that is in such an abused and possible bad condition. They do it to deer all the time that are on the road, but when it comes to someone's pet, it needs to be euthanized. And the ACO does not need to inform the owner what they did with the animal.
Our local animal shelter says the animal is to be brought to them and they will determine what should be done with the animal. And the owner will be notified.
Who is correct?
