Wenning is a joke. He is not qualified for his job, I don't know how he got it, unless someone just wanted him around for laughs, or to make the place look diverse. I've never heard anyone say a good word about him.

I've called several times and no answer it no call back. Strays are always dumped by my house and when he does answer I'm told to catch them first before he will come out!

Maybe if people would stop trying to be "wanna be breeders" there wouldn't be a stray problem.

But there is a problem, and Wenning does a miserable job of dealing with it.

wow! that is not a job I would ever want...very hard job to do and to make all involved happy.

perhaps if you think you can do a better job you should go volunteer and walk in his shoes a bit.

Horrible animal control officer. Rude, unqualified, office run like some trailer park family office. Can't catch strays or deal with real animal control issues, always in people business and he's a big fan of charging people fines.

I have talked to him a few times and he has always treated me with respect. he does a great job and loves animals. I had a pug with a lot of medical problems I just couldnt afford anymore and he found him a good home. he always has a smile when I see him. I think what he is doing is a good thing...

He is so fake. I guess he's going to give the kids tips on how to fake their way through life with false sincerity. He probably took that pug because it garnered him a 'rehoming fee' or the like. He is a pretender!

Mellencamp is a loudmouth that spent his days in Seymour getting hit in said mouth and knocked on his ass for having diarrhea of said mouth! Association with him is nothing to be proud of! One fake hanging out with yet another fake! Just because you can lift weights does not justify your personality or intelligence (or lack of).
We should put up a poll to see what people really think of the way this showboat executes his office!

I understand why you have a dislike for Mike Wenning. It isn't his stature or his job, it is the subject that he is conveying to the kids in school. He is against bullying and wants to help kids in handling a bully. I can see that would really piss you off. You are the fake and a bully.
Mike Wenning, you are doing a good job and I hope that can convey the message about the pain that bullies cause. You can use Misery Now as an example of how a bully is depressed individual with low self esteem.

I didn't like Wenning when he strutted around Delta like he was somebody. He got away with that because he was always shirking his duties with excuses as to how he couldn't do his job because he was too short. Then trying to act all Christian (another act), and then getting the job of dogcatcher that he was not qualified for and based on the complaints heard here, he does not do his job very well at all and that is a wide-held belief in this town. It's not just my opinion, everyone on here and people I have spoke with face-to-face share the same ill opinion of him and his office.

PS No one at Delta ever wanted to work near him, because it meant they had double-work!

MrDecatur, don't presume to know me. I am not a bully. It's not some predjudice. It is the fact that he is a DOG CATCHER and can't CATCH a DOG. But by golly let little Fifi out to pee without a leash and you'll pay his fine. He runs around lecturing people on this and that, where are his qualifications? He wasn't the strongest person in the world. He was strongest in his weight class. It a manipulation of rules. Then he was posing in a music video flewing muscles. Guess what, John Mellencamp was making fun of him for being small. He was bullying Mike. Some one needs to have a sit down with mr cougar and admonish him on his bullying ways.

Well, I already laid out what the crowd in Seymour thought of Mellencamp back in the day. No surprise on what al had to add.
Wenning never could cut it at any job he ever went at. He's got a talent for sucking the right dick and manipulating situations to land on his cushy ass. That is why the county does not like Wenning.

Seriously dude this is supposed to be review sounds like you have serious personal issues with Mr. Wenning. If you spent the time doing something positive with the times you spend bashing this guy you actually might get something positive out of it. Letting yourself be obsessed with something or someone is never brings good results to that person. I bet mike Wenning doesnít lose any sleep worrying or thinking about how much you donít care for him. It only hurts you. So man take it easy and let go of it. You will be better off. I know you will probably reply to this by bashing me like you did to John Mellencamp and Mike Wenning. But guess what I also am not going to give any more thought about this when I am done writing it. So in saying all of this you can comment on a personís ability to do a job without getting personal it is called being professional..
