Group holds candlelight vigil for local Humane Society animals
PADUCAH — Following abuse allegations, a local group said they want to honor the animals who died at a local animal shelter.
The McCracken County Humane Society is under investigation after the sheriff's department arrested former employee Beau Anderson for improperly euthanizing animals.
Deputies said the case dates back years and involves at least 8,000 cats and dogs.
Undercover video showed mistreatment of living and dead animals.
A few days later, McCracken County Humane Society Director Shirley Grimes said she planned to resign during December's board meeting.
Many people in our area remembered those animals who died with a candlelight vigil Monday at the county courthouse.

The temporary shelter in McCracken County said they have two dogs up for adoption.
