From: Brett Petty

Good Morning Beryl,

I was forwarded an email from you that you had sent to the Helena Police Department. You are requesting all information in regards to animal control events in the state of Montana. Here at the Helena Police Department, we only keep record of our animal control calls that are specific to the jurisdiction of Helena, MT within Lewis and Clark County. This specific jurisdiction would be the only records that we would have.

I am not sure if this is exactly what you are looking for or if in fact you are looking for the entire state of Montana. Let me know on this request and we can proceed from there.

Have a nice day.

Brett

Hi Brett,

I apologize for the radio silence, and I hope you've been well in the interim. I'd be happy to receive whatever responsive materials your agency does have. However, would you happen to know who handles animal control events in other areas? Montana Fish, Wildlife, and Parks had been my first destination, but they soon directed me to your office.

Thanks again!
Beryl
