LANCASTER, Pa. (WHTM) – The executive director of the Lancaster County SPCA has agreed to no longer handle animal cruelty cases.
That’s what district attorney Craig Stedman wanted.
Susan Martin raised eyebrows over the way she handled the case of a severely neglected puppy.
She and Stedman both signed the paperwork Wednesday, revoking her authority to investigate animal cruelty cases.
Martin had refused to file charges against the owner of Libre, a puppy so neglected, it was at first unclear that he was a Boston Terrier.
He’s since been adopted by one of his rescuers.
The district attorney also plans to create a new training program for all humane society officers.
