Jersey City animal shelter accused of mass killings

JERSEY CITY - Volunteers at The Liberty Humane Society in Jersey City say they are trying to save dozens of dogs from mass killings that are taking place there. Volunteers that spoke with News 12 New Jersey say in the last few weeks, 28 dogs have been euthanized, even though there was not sufficient cause. Diana Jeffrey, who is with the shelter, admits many dogs have been put down recently, but says they were dangerous and the shelter had no choice. The allegations come after the entire board stepped down last month and the shelter failed state inspection. The inspection found the shelter was overcrowded and unclean.
