LCHS alleges death threats
The Lincoln County Humane Society alleges death threats have been made against the organization.
Executive Director LCHS Kevin Strooband tells CKTB News he believes the alleged death threats stem from mounting tensions within the community.
It's unclear who is behind the alleged threats. In an email, Niagara Regional Police spokesperson Derek Watson tells CKTB News that "there are no new investigations involving death threats towards the Lincoln County Humane Society."
The LCHS has come under fire in recent months over board transparency, membership applications and calls for a no-kill policy at the shelter.
The LCHS is holding another meeting on Wednesday. Many had hoped the venue for this meeting would be able to hold more members of the public. However, No Kill St. Catharines spokesperson Bill Lefeuvre says after weeks of waiting, it was discovered the meeting will be held at the Fourth Avenue shelter.
Strooband says they are having the meeting at the shelter because that is where they do business.
He adds they have tried having meetings at other locations, including the St. Catharines Kiwanis Centre, but they haven't worked out.
The LCHS meeting is scheduled for Wednesday January 16th at 6:30pm at the Lincoln County Humane Society on Fourth Avenue.
