The city of Lawrence fired an animal control officer after dead and malnourished animals were discovered among filthy conditions at the shelter. Two dead dogs and a cat were found Tuesday night by police officers investigating a vandalism call involving broken windows at the facility. The fired worker, David A. Ross Jr., 49, was the shelter’s only employee and could face charges. At least 11 animals remain at the shelter.
