DeKalb County flip-flops on pound policy 

Last week, CL reported that the DeKalb County Commission shortened the waiting period to euthanize animals at the county pound from five days to three. On Jan. 25, after animal advocates vehemently spoke out against the change (and after CL went to press), commissioners announced they would restore the wait period to five days. Says Heidi Pollyea, one of the animal advocates, "It really shows what public pressure can do that the commissioners are willing to respond to it."
