Animal control officer killed, bank representative injured by shotgun blast from foreclosed home
GALT – A Sacramento County animal control officer has been killed and a bank representative wounded as they were trying to deal with a pet or pets left inside a home that fell into foreclosure.
The former occupant of the home on First Street in Galt was evicted on Tuesday. He left a pet or pets behind. By law, the foreclosing bank is responsible to care for left-behind pets.
When the two approached the house around noon Wednesday, someone from inside fired a shotgun through the front door, striking the two.
