Officer warns about leaving animals out in cold


Seymour’s animal control officer is asking city residents to remember their animals as temperatures plunge near or even fall below zero in the comings days.

“Even the hardiest of animals shouldn’t be left out in the cold,” Chuck Heiss said. “The biggest thing you can do is bring your animals inside where they can be warm and stay dry. Just get them out of the elements.”

Heiss said calls about animals being outside have picked up the past week.

“It’s mostly an educational thing,” he said. “I go out and talk to the pet owner and give them some instructions and tips.”
