JONESBORO -- On Saturday, Jonesboro Animal Control Officers removed a six-foot long Burmese Python from a woman's garden. It's all in a day's work...but do you ever wonder what exactly does Animal Control do?
"It's stressful. But it just varies. One day it could be the animals that you have to worry about and the next day, it's the people," said Veal.
Jonesboro doesn't have a leash law for cats, so it's mostly dogs that find their way to the pound. Federal law requires all dogs that are picked up to be placed at the pound for five days before they are available for adoption. Only one out of four dogs are adopted from the shelter, but the JAC would like to see more find good homes.
