Fannin County GA Wake up Call sign now

Wake up Call for Fannin County, Georgia Re: Officials' apathy toward animal abuse/neglect

TO: Mayor Robert Greene; Dr. Richard Vollrath, County Commissioner Chairman; Fannin County Commissioners; Sheriff George Ensley

I am urging all signers to show the above named officials exactly how this will effect their region. Please use your comment field.

Blue Ridge, Ga, just north of Atlanta, is a popular vacation destination with lots of cabin rentals. Please do not spend your vacation dollars here until law enforcement and the local judicial system upholds the laws on the books and prosecutes animal abusers.

Fannin County Residents:These officials need to understand this will be an election issue.
Visitors/vacationers: Write to these people and let them know how strongly you feel and the dollars they'll be losing. Contact below for addresses.

Recent examples:
May 17, 2004-local man, Jeffery Anderson, arrested for family violence, is overheard by jailers telling his son, Jeremy Anderson, to go back and shoot the woman's dog, which he does. The dog was tied to a tree and could not escape. A warrant was issued for his arrest on animal cruelty, but was postponed so he wouldn't have to miss his graduation ceremony.
May 5, 2005-Mayor of Blue Ridge, Robert Greene, 83, arrested attending a local cockfight. He was charged with gambling, a misdemeanor. Article found in Atlanta Journal 5/06/05.
Tuesday, May 10, 2005-local animal control and sheriff's deputy are called to one of several properties a local medical doctor owns. Found are dead animals amongst injured and starving dogs, 11 in all. No food or water. Six eyewitnesses are present. Pictures are taken, reports are written. No charges filed.
Westview Drive-8 family pets poisoned, autopsy shows positive for strychnine poison in stomach contents of 11 month old female (strychnine available only by permit). It took several calls for sheriff's office to respond with "What do you want me to do? It's only a dog." No further action taken.

Former employees of the County Commissioner's office remark they've never seen a case of animal abuse/neglect filed in Fannin County in their 25-30 years of service.

The "good ole boy network" is alive and well. These elected leaders have been in position so long, they appear untouchable. I strongly urge you to let them know that times are changing, this apathy will no longer be tolerated.
