The manager was fired for this reason - a commander was assigned to the animal control office. He was a psycho who had issues, yelled at staff and talked to her in a way no one should have to tolerate. The Assistant Chief became aware and managed the improper situation for a while, until commander whatever his name was blew up in the office and was basically asked to or forced to leave. Commander Caulfield came in and being friends with the former commander... Railroaded the manager until she was fired. This was a total and brutal violation of justice... BYE the people we hire to server and protect us... Embarrassing, but what are you going to do?
