A family moved out of their foreclosed home in Los Angeles leaving a dog in the house and another in the garage. Neighbors heard them crying and called AC for help. AC refused to enter the home:
“Possibility the people could come back and then they could turn this around and sue the city,” explained Animal Services Officer Hoang Dinh.
The city is required to give a written warning to the owners before entering the home or removing the dogs.
A man named Hans Peterson went into the home and rescued the dog inside. As he was walking out, he was arrested for “interfering” with AC.
So are you on Team Hans or Team No Government Entry to Private Property?
