KETCHIKAN (AP) An animal shelter in Ketchikan is cutting back on its road kill service because of budget cuts.
The Pat Wise Animal Shelter, which is operated by the Ketchikan Gateway Borough, said field officers will no longer pick up dead animals after regular business hours. Instead, the shelter is asking the public to move dead animals to the side of the road, where they will be picked up the next business day.
The shelter also said it will no longer pick up live traps provided by the shelter to trap nuisance animals after business hours. It is asking that the traps be set up only during regular business hours, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
