Could your animals be taken from you?

Published 8:20 am Thursday, June 10, 2010

Could you possibly be a victim of a search and seizure of any of your pets or other animals based only on someone else’s opinion? Could you lose all your animals, never to see them again? Could someone else profit from the selling of your animals even though you are guilty of no crime and, you still own them?

Want answers? Come to a meeting on June 19 at the Pizza Ranch located at 201 W. Main St. in Lake Mills. The time will be from 1:30 to 4 p.m.

Come and hear Dan Christiansen’s story. Christiansen, of Hurley, S.D., had all of his valuable, internationally known hunting dogs seized in November 2009. You will be aghast with the tactics used, that something like this could and does actually happen in the United States.
