Case Study

Seizing Animals: What Happens Until Jury?
August 18, 2021 – 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm (EDT) – Virtual

In Washington State RCW 16.52.085 allows Animal Control Officers to serve a Bail Bond Notice to the animal owner when seizing them for a cruelty investigation.

This case study is actually reviewing 3 separate cases; the first, no Bail Bond notice was served, the second, a notice was served and finally a case where a notice was prepared to be served and custody was signed over on scene.

Even if you don’t work in Washington, this presentation provides an interesting look at the legal semantics of seizing animals for cases.
