Inability to house vicious animals a problem for city
By Chris Rourke.

Gunnison Valley Animal Welfare League (GVAWL) representatives say the problem is the result of a misunderstanding. Leaders from both sides have been meeting for the last month to iron out the issue of how to handle vicious animals, in addition to other operating procedures.
