The news of this horrific place is all over the nation! Why are the elected officials stepping up to do something about this? Seems like they'd be acting on it since it will have a significant negative impact on tourism.

I'd like to know the same thing! The officials there know what is going on and the police even took pictures last year but still nothing. Shame on you Forks!

I'm very let down by the Forks officials and the community for doing NOTHING for so long.
In the long run people that come here for tourism really don't care about local politics or what is going on here.
They care about Twilight, hunting, fishing, "Big Foot" sightings, hiking and beach combing.
So I think that is why the community didn't get behind getting Steve shut down.
I'm extremely disappointed and saddened by the dogs plight.

The city should move swiftly to pass an ordinance limiting how many animals can be kept in a sanctuary/rescue. He is back in town and who knows if he will start it back up or not.
