Tyler Animal Control Officer Reassigned

The man in charge of Tyler's Animal Control no longer holds that position.  You may recall photos presented to Smith County Commissioners last month.  The Humane Society says Health District Supervisor Gary Chambers brought the dog to the shelter unconscious, after the officer dragged the dog by the neck.  Humane Society Director Gayle Helms said Chambers would have to be transferred to a new position before they would agree to continue shelter services for animal control.  The Northeast Texas Public Health District, which run's Tyler's Animal Control, said an interim field supervisor has been named in Chamber's place.
