OPELOUSAS -- St. Landry Parish president Jessie Bellard announced today that the parish's animal control department would be temporarily unable to handle calls.

"I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause our residents," said Bellard. "We'll be fully operations again as soon as we can."

Animal Control will be available for emergencies, only. Residents should call the St. Landry Parish Sheriff's Department at (337) 948-6516 with their request for emergency assistance.

"We'll do our best to accommodate any emergency that may arise in the parish while we are short-staffed," said Bellard.

Three animal control employees were suspended without pay while the St. Landry Parish Sheriff is conducting an investigation. Because the investigation is a personnel issue, Parish Government will not comment further until it is complete.
