Last month we shared the story of Daisy, an indoor-only tabby who was picked up by Animal Control officers Aaron Jordan and John Marsh Jr. in Jersey City, and dumped in a local park rather than delivered to a shelter. Daisy survived a snowstorm and was eventually reunited with her owner, Morgan Metius.
Joe Frank, who supervises Jordan and Marsh, has looked in to the matter, but feels it was an isolated incident, as you can see in this video investigation by Fox 5’s Arnold Diaz:
Sounds like the fox is guarding the henhouse. Thus far, neither Jordan nor Marsh has been fired or charged with animal cruelty.
In the wake of the Daisy incident, Companion Animal Trust, a group of animal activists, caught 21 cats in Lincoln Park. Of those, 13 were spayed/neutered and returned to the park, and eight were put up for adoption at Liberty Humane Society in Jersey City, N.J.
If you’d like to ensure that this incident is properly investigated and Aaron Jordan and John Marsh Jr. are brought to justice, you can contact Mayor Jarramiah Healy and Councilman Steve Fulop:
