Dog's life in Helena

Posted By on Fri, Dec 19, 2008 at 1:12 PM

Comes word of an agreed fine of Helena-West Helena Mayor James Valley for setting city pound dogs loose in the nearby national forest.

HELENA-WEST HELENA, ARKANSAS – Helena-West Helena Mayor James Valley has been issued a federal violation for abandoning personal property on the St. Francis National Forest (36 CFR 261.10e).   The agreement between the U.S. Forest Service, U.S. Attorney’s Office, Ronald Davis, Jr., {Attorney for Valley} and Mayor Valley results in Valley paying fine and restitution of $1,900.

The restitution charges were incurred after the mayor instructed an employee to dump two loads of dogs in the St. Francis National Forest and will be paid to Northeast Arkansans for Animals for their work in locating and rescuing the dogs.

“We appreciate the assistance of Northeast Arkansans for Animals of Jonesboro and area residents who assisted in the recovery of the dogs,” said Ozark-St. Francis National Forest Supervisor Judi Henry.

Probably a good outcome. Turning the mayor loose on a cold night with light clothing a few miles from civilization also had occurred to me.
