FRANKFORT, Ind (WLFI) — Police had to step in, after the sudden firing of Clinton County's Humane Society Director Jim Tate inspired protesters in Frankfort.
More than 30 community members gathered outside a private meeting, run by the Clinton County Humane Society Board of Directors, to discuss the shelter's future.
The board called the police when protesters entered the building at the Clinton County fairgrounds.
The protesters never gained access to the meeting room itself, which was locked.
Police told the protesters they had to leave the building.
They then went outside the fairgrounds and held signs in support of Jim Tate and the other fired staff members.
News 18 reached out to the Clinton County Board of Directors and has not heard back.
The Clinton County Sherrif's Office said the board of directors would send out a press release, but News 18 has not received it.
