LBReport.com is also separately requesting the opportunity to video record the euthanasia procedure, carried out in the manner specified by management on a dog and a cat.
LBReport.com provides the text of our request to City Manager Pat West below:
Mr. Pat West
City Manager, City of Long Beach
Long Beach City Hall

Dear. Mr. West:
Under the CA Public Records Act (CA Gov't Code § 6250 et seq), the undersigned seeks access to records showing the annual number of euthanasias performed by the City of Long Beach at its Animal Control facility in 2005, 2006, and 2007 as well as the annual number of animals taken in by LB Animal Control, redeemed by owners, referred to SPCA-LA or other entities for adoption.
Duplicative, voluminous or identifying data aren't requested. A single annual cumulated tabulation for each year is requested showing the number of dogs, cats and other animals euthanaized, their cunmulated sources (strays, owner turn-ins) and if available euthanasia-related data (vicious, ill).
LBReport.com separately requests the opportunity to video record a euthanasia procedure carried out on a dog and a cat in the manner specified by management. We request the opportunity to video record the animal prior to the procedure, preparations for the procedure as relevant, the actual euthanasia and the animal's disposal. The video will be shown on LBReport.com unedited from start to finish.
The video recording will be the undersigned using a hand held (inobtrusive) camera using ambient lighting and sound without any special accommodations requested.
Very truly yours,
William Pearl, publisher
