Here's something on the lighter side. Enjoy!

Tarrant County deputies never know who they might find hanging around on deep nights. In this short video, Deputy Brogdon came across a young deer that was a little short on it's high jump.

All turned out OK. This young one (the deer, not the deputy) was tired, but not seriously injured.

NEXT THURSDAY:

Does your agency investigate and respond to criminal cases involving animals? How do you obtain legal custody of the animal victims? Animals are property under the law, which means agencies who remove them from their owners must ensure they are standing on solid legal ground. Agencies seizing animals in criminal cases face many challenges. Animals are the evidence of the crime but, with time, their conditions change. Wounds heal and illness and disease are treated. The evidentiary value of the animals’ condition diminishes as they recover. Therefore, by the time the case goes to court, the current condition of the animal or its presence in the courtroom is not necessary to make the case. Animal victims deserve to recover and be placed into a suitable permanent home as quickly as possible. This session will explore civil remedies agencies have to secure custody of seized animals.

Who's a good girl!? 🥰🥰

In my continuing efforts to limit the tacticool photographs that purportedly make cops feel like they are acting in a Don Simpson/Jerry Bruckheimer film— I bring you Officer Lucas Libby in his bathroom.

Sure, the shower curtain could be concealing three-hundred pounds of sensitive explosives and a 1973 Barracuda with a pistol grip shifter and a 440 big block.

In the aftermarket in-dash CD player FM tuner could be a pristine copy of the 1981 Rolling Stones CD "Tattoo You." Song selection would be easy. If Officer Libby had his way it would be on track eleven, "Waiting on a friend." If K9 Jessy had her choice it would be track number one, "Start Me Up."

But this is not THAT photo.

This is Jessy, sitting on the toilet while Officer Libby brushes her head with his girlfriend's hairbrush; shhhhh. She won't suspect a thing.

The purpose of the photo is to celebrate the completion of Jessy's certification as a non-biting, biscuit crunching Narcotic recovery pooch.

She is also certified in search and rescue operations.

They passed their testing with flying colors. We are proud of this team.

*Not shown- Officer Libby's collection of over thirty-two cans of uniquely named Axe Body Sprays and his pistol-grip shifter toilet brush*

**ALSO NOT SHOWN- Libby's girlfriend's face when she finds out about what he has been doing with her hairbrush**

If you are carrying narcotics, selling narcotics, carrying the remnants and residuals of narcotics, meth pipes, baggies, boot kits, needles, the proceeds of narcotics sales, or a box of biscuits, you have been given fair warning. Don't say I didn't warn you.

Jessy will be kind in her probe of your personal space, body parts and your mode of transportation. Lucas? He will smell like Axe.

Congratulations to the team.

Keep your hands to yourself, leave other people's things alone, and be kind to one another.

We will be here.

P.S. Lucas, I have forgiven you for forgetting to bring me that used set of handlebars for my motorcycle. I'm just using snip of an alder branch with some duct tape for grips. It's working fine. I know I promised to never mention the Axe body spray collection, but...

PARIS TN: Deputies find caged child during animal cruelty probe

Deputies from the Henry County Sheriff's Office found a heartbreaking scene while investigating an animal cruelty complaint: a young child in a dog crate.

"...the child was living just like any other animal on the property,” Sheriff’s Investigator Scott Wyrick said. “In a cage, in filth.”

It takes a lot to shock seasoned law officers. But what Sheriff Monte Belew and members of the Henry County Sheriff’s Department found while investigating an animal cruelty complaint Thursday

Start your week off with a feel good story. Animal Control Officer Fejarang recently responded to a home in the area of Blackwood Drive and Darvon Street to retrieve 7 ducklings and their mother from a swimming pool. He corralled the ducklings into a tall plastic receptacle. Being a well-seasoned Animal Control Officer, he knew from experience the mother duck would follow. Officer Fejarang then walked well over a quarter of a mile with the chirping ducklings from the residence to the end of Parkshore Drive where it meets at the Newark Lake. The mother duck accompanied Officer Fejarang the entire distance. They stopped for several breaks in the shade along the way. Once at the lake, Officer Fejarang gently set the receptacle on its side on the grass and the ducklings ran out to their mother. They all jumped into the lake and swam away.

KITTEN RESCUE: While patrolling in Ellenton last night, Dep. Kenyan noticed something small on the side of the road. After stopping to see what it was, he found a hungry kitten crying on the shoulder. He scooped her up and took her back to his patrol car, where he keeps food and water on hand for any cats or dogs he may encounter. She quickly ate it and stayed safe in the car until Animal Services could come and get her. The good news is she is being cared for and will be available for adoption next week! #MCSOCares #KittenRescue

Yesterday evening, just after 7:00 p.m., three swift water rescue teams completed the rescue of a yellow lab named Mowgly who had been missing since Tuesday.

On June 2, friends of the dog’s owners took Mowgly with them on a camping trip near the Coulson Gulch Trailhead, which is located next to Johnny Park in northwest Boulder County. Shortly after arriving, the campers noticed Mowgly had disappeared. Mowgly’s owners, along with many of their friends, began hiking the mountains from Coulson Gulch to the North Saint Vrain Creek looking for him, and posted signs and electronic messages asking recreators to be on the lookout for him. Their search efforts spanned all three days Mowgly was missing.

On June 5, at approximately 10 a.m., one of the searchers spotted Mowgly from the top of a cliff. Mowgly was lying near a large tree near the North Saint Vrain Creek on a small section of dry land, surrounded by rock cliffs that left him unable to move further. Mowgly likely fell into the North Saint Vrain Creek but was able to crawl out onto the small 20-foot piece of land up a small shoot between the rocks near the tree. It is believed Mowgly had been there since going missing on Tuesday.

Three swift water rescue teams responded to help rescue Mowgly from his perch across the creek. It took time for the rescue teams to establish the Tyrolean traverse rope rescue system to return Mowgly to safety given the terrain. Establishing the rescue system required two rescue swimmers to locate a suitable location on the creek that was calm and safe enough for them to cross. Once across the creek, the rescuers had to hike across and then down to Mowgly’s location and beginning the process of rigging the rescue roping. Once the rescue system was secured, Mowgly was placed into a dog rescue harness, was attached to the Tyrolean rope, and was ferried over the creek back to safety. Once safely on the north side of the creek, rescuers walked him up the steep slope to his waiting family and friends.

Mowgly was calm throughout the rescue, was found to be uninjured, and returned home with his owners after his rescue. If not for the dedication of Mowgly’s family and friends pursuit to find him, it is unlikely he would have been found in time.

The three swift water rescue teams who collaborated together to save Mowgly were from the Lyons Fire Protection District, Boulder Emergency Squad, and the Boulder Fire Department. They were assisted by deputies and emergency services coordinators from the sheriff’s office.

What a great ending and happy day for Mowgly and his family!

Today, Deputy Hakenson was in the area of Staley Road and Homestead Lane when he encountered a female pit-bull mix wearing only a collar with no tags.

Deputy Hakenson opened his driver’s side door to provide assistance to the canine. The canine then immediately leapt into the vehicle, activating the emergency lights; indicating possible law enforcement training in the past.

The canine then moved to the passenger’s seat and attempted to grab all of Deputy Hakenson’s civil paperwork but was unable to assist due to not having opposable thumbs.

After locating and interviewing several subjects, the canine was identified as "Molly" and a general area of residency was established. Contact was made with two of Molly’s neighbors who verified the owner's location. Molly was then safely reunited with her family!

Yes, this really does happen. Rowlett Fire Rescue Department (emphasis on the RESCUE for this story) responded to a nighttime distress call from a resident concerned about a little stray fluff ball who was very vocal and refused to come down after practicing his climbing skills in a tree. The crew tried to find him up there but the kitty clammed up and proved adept at avoiding detection. Utilizing all of their extensive real-world situation training, firefighters eventually located the kitten using a cat meow YouTube video. He was successfully rescued and the neighborhood was able to go back to sleep.

Never one to let a good photo op pass him by, Firefighter Paramedic Cody Holt cuddles his new buddy. And, fed him some ham after giving the little guy a bath. Great example of how your Rowlett Firefighters put their personal safety on the line every day - I mean, who voluntarily bathes a CAT?

UPDATE: The kitten later got loose INSIDE the station. Chaos ensued.
UPDATE 2:. The kitten was secured and has been dispatched to his fur-ever home. All is quiet once again at Station 2.

LEE COUNTY SHERIFF'S OFFICE PRESS RELEASE: NEW ANIMAL CRUELTY TASK FORCE

Coordinated and activated by Sheriff Carmine Marceno, a new Animal Cruelty Task Force has been created to educate the county regarding animal abuse and neglect and to enforce any and all laws pertaining to the mistreatment of animals.

“The link between animal abuse and human abuse is clear and frightening,” stated Sheriff Carmine Marceno. “In addition to protecting defenseless animals, addressing animal cruelty will likely prevent future acts of violence against people in our county.”

An endless number of studies document the connections between animal cruelty/abuse and domestic violence, child abuse, mass violence episodes and sexual violence.

Effective immediately, the Animal Cruelty Task Force, working in unison with Lee County Domestic Animal Services and their veterinarians, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and Southwest Florida Crime Stoppers, will proactively educate the community regarding animal abuse laws as well as enforce them to their fullest extent.

“We have arrested and successfully prosecuted cases of animal abuse in Lee County,” added Sheriff Marceno. “This task force strengthens our ability to investigate, locate and arrest those committing these acts of cruelty.”

Lee County Sheriff’s Office detectives will be assigned to this task force and, using LCSO’s resources, will fully investigate all misdemeanor and felony animal abuse cases within the county. Working cohesively with the State Attorney’s Office, those abusing animals in Lee County will be brought to justice.

“Not here,” said the sheriff. “Not here…not now…not ever! Abuse an animal in Lee County…you’re going to jail.”

Officer McCombs spent part of his Christmas holiday sitting with Smith at the Veterinary hospital, loving on him and reassuring him that his life would be better. Rescuing a dog and being a good role model doesn't end the day a dog is rescued, that's only the beginning.
