On the 17th of April 2014 at approximately 8:40PM Big Spring Police Department Officers and Emergency Medical Service personnel were dispatched to the 1200 block of Gregg Street in reference to a small child being struck by a vehicle.  By 8:42 PM EMS and Officers had arrived on scene and the child was immediately transported to Scenic Mountain Medical Center for treatment.  It was found that the child (2 years of age) was with his elderly grandmother in the parking lot of “Hunan’s restaurant” (1201 S. Gregg) when the “rambunctious” child had ran into the roadway and was struck by a 2005 Red Ford F-150 PK.  The investigation led Officers to believe that the incident was a tragic accident and no charges will be filed as a result.  The child was treated and released from Scenic Mountain Medical Center the night of the 17th of April 2014.  Investigators contacted the child’s mother on this date and found the child is doing well though they are following up with physicians as a precautionary measure.

Media Release 9/8/14

On 9/5/14 at approximately 8:00 AM, the Big Spring Animal Control Kennel Worker responded to the Big Spring Animal Shelter to begin her normal duties. The Kennel worker discovered several deceased chickens inside the fenced area of the Shelter. The deceased chickens were left on the grounds until an Animal Control Officer was available to help examine the chickens and determine what killed the birds. Around 12:00 PM other chickens began to appear that were injured and had came back to the area of the shelter. Some of the chickens were taken to a vet to be treated for the injuries. When the Animal Control Officer arrived to assist the Kennel Worker, the deceased chickens were examined and it appeared as though the chickens died by being struck with some type of blunt object or tool. The chickens were also taken to a local vet who confirmed that he also believes the chickens were struck with a tool and it did not appear that the chickens were attacked by another animal. The fenced area was locked and secured at the time of this crime and it appears as though someone gained access to the secure area in order to kill the animals. Preventative measures are being sought to better secure the facility. The Animal Cruelty case is currently being investigated by the Big Spring Police Department. Due to this case being an on going criminal investigation, no further details can be released at this time.
