A Flint City Councilman is asking the state to investigate the conditions at the Genesee County Animal Shelter. According to MLive, Watwaz Davis wrote a letter to the Attorney General's office in which he called the conditions at the shelter appalling saying he "was taken aback by the substandard conditions the animals were placed under." Davis went on to say the "stenches in the cages were deplorable; the cages and animals were not properly cleaned" and there was "neither adequate water nor food." Volunteers have been pushing for improved conditions at the shelter. However, they were temporarily suspended from the building last week. The Genesee County Board of Commissioners has since voted to bring back the volunteer program and approved to ask voters for a 0.2 mill property tax to pay for improvements.
