Roswell Mayor Dennis Kintigh is getting death threats for banning state rescue groups from adopting from the local shelter.
Monday, Kintigh lifted that ban and formed an agreement allowing groups to adopt again, but now that policy is under fire too.
The new agreement says rescues can adopt from Roswell’s animal control facility as long as they have proof they’re a non-profit, agree to treat the pets humanely and agree to inspections.
Kintigh says he thought the policy changes had calmed the situation, but Tuesday disturbing voicemails flooded his office.
Some of the messages were so threatening officials had to call police.
