Not shut down permanently, and animal control was called. I never said they took the scene or operated at the scene or even made a call at the and scene as I didn't call them, I called the local police dept and just stated what I observed. Yes I agree things may have gotten out of control. It is what it is now... With the wife in one ear about the odor and all these dead fish all over the place, ok the curb, near the dumpster and on the area around it it was either ignore it and tell her I don't even know what I would have said or...
Keep it simple and do what I feel was the right thing and make "someone" aware of the situation as in my opinion it was a situation that needed to be addressed. Yea... I could have walked in and spoke with the manager I guess, someone who's part time at some big LFS
probably wouldn't have gotten me far unless pulling out my own badge and county I.D. which I didn't want to do although it will be in the report BUT I was not "acting under the capacity"
What the cops decided to do or call, health dept, animal control etc etc was not my call, nor do I know what any agencies did other then what I saw, which was a sigh on the door stating closed until further notice and I heard something to the effect of not selling any fish and having the filtration system check. I also did hear something about quarantine.
You can ask as many questions as you want. I'm sorry I don't have the answers as I didn't stick around for the duration. I took my family elsewhere...
Like I mentioned it is what it is... I slept fine last night and the wife was happy that something was done.
That's a double win in my book
