LEO has another report on the continuing problems at Metro Animal Services:

To get a clearer picture of LMAS’ stagnation, one need only look at the current euthanasia numbers. According to data compiled by an LMAS employee, 5,991 out of a total 10,213 animals (58 percent) were euthanized between Jan. 1 and Sept. 30, 2009. During the same time frame in 2010, the euthanasia rate dropped a mere 1 percent, with 5,925 out of a total 10,382 animals (57 percent) being euthanized.
