Torres issued this statement on Wednesday:
Due to possible litigation, we are unable to comment on the case. I can tell you the person involved does have a history with Animal Services at other locations in the city. We have issued citations under our authority and plan to present the case to the district attorney's office for possible additional charges. The disposition hearing is tentatively scheduled for the July 21, 2014, for the animals that were taken.
