Letter to the Editor: Thank You To Los Alamos Police Officer

Los Alamos

As a 15-year animal shelter volunteer, I would like to publicly recognize an officer who responded beyond his job description and upheld the highest of humane standards.

Cpl. Brent Hudspeth was called to 48th Street the evening of Oct. 11 to pick up some roaming kittens. He determined that the kittens were too young to comfortably and safely spend the night at the shelter, so he brought them to his own home. They eagerly accepted the cat milk he fed them, and he was able to determine their age at about four weeks.

Our community can be proud to have officers
