Madisonville Police looking for people who vandalized Hopkins Co. humane society


Madisonville Police are looking for the people responsible for vandalism at the Hopkins County Humane Society.

Dustin Miller, the humane society executive director, says he arrived at work Friday morning and found graffiti on the building.

"I was shocked. I was definitely shocked. I was appalled that someone could commit such a crime on a nonprofit organization," said Miller.

The graffiti included the words ‘Thieves’ Don't kill’ and ‘Killers’ as well as other expletives.

"It appears that someone had to be pretty upset to commit something like this, do something like this, when you're doing something like this that's right for the animals with them in the forefront of their minds…you're always going to have retaliation," said Miller

There haven't been any arrests.

Miller speculates the vandalism could be retaliation for several recent court cases.

Humane society officials say the facility will be closed to the public until further notice.
